Farrell, Mary (O'Neil) - Wallingford (The Record-Journal)  
"A Legacy of Love" WALLINGFORD - In her own words, Mary O'Neil Farrell, 71, beloved wife of William J. Farrell, has gone to meet her Maker and join her mom, Ethel Bellows O'Neil, her dad, Thomas P. O'Neil, and her little brother, Tommy Boy. She died on Friday, June 26, 2015, at N.Y. Presbyterian Hospital due to complications while recovering from open heart surgery. Mary courageously elected to have this surgery in the hopes of extending the life she loved so much. Born on Sept. 27, 1943, and a lifelong resident of Wallingford, Mary took great pleasure in being part of a large and loving family. She is survived by her five sisters and their husbands, Kathy and Manny Oliveira, Peg and Clark Robison, Ann and Tom Purcell, all of Meriden, Jeannie and Bob Carmody, of Wallingford, and Moe and Ted Dryja, of Milton, Mass.; and her two brothers and their wives, Toby and Mary Ann O'Neil, and Jim and Judy O'Neil, of Wallingford; as well as her many adored nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Bill, with whom she recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, she is survived by her daughter and son, their spouses, and her beloved grandchildren, Colleen and Noah Rosenblatt-Farrell and their daughter, Tehila, of Durham, N.C., and Bill and Liz Farrell and their sons, Jonathan and Colin, of Lyme. A true lover of people, Mary leaves behind many beloved friends, both new and old. Mary graduated from Yale School of Nursing and continued to use her expertise to provide TLC to friends and family in need, even after she left formal nursing to raise her two children. Despite being diagnosed with a heart condition in her early 30's, Mary was full of energy and gave generously of her time and attention to individuals and organizations. She took great pride in her town and was the co-founder of Wallingford's anti-litter campaign, whose slogan is "Don't Be Mean, Keep It Clean." For the past 14 years, she was the Patient Liaison for Integrated Wellness & Physical Therapy, where she gave guidance and hope to countless clients on their healing journeys. Mary's senior quote in her Lyman Hall High School yearbook was, "Without love & laughter, there is no joy," and she lived this belief on a daily basis, bringing warmth, deep compassion, and a sense of fun to all of her interactions. Mary knew no strangers, only friends she had not met, and will always be remembered for her gift of unwavering presence and the ability to make each person she engaged with feel special and loved. Symbolic of her passionate and wholehearted approach to life, Mary never accepted a one-armed hug; through the years she taught many folks the virtues of the two-armed hug! Her positive attitude, combined with her warrior spirit, helped Mary move many mountains in her lifetime, always in the name of love and with the intention of making the world a more joyful place. A woman of deep faith, Mary believed that the Good Lord had a plan for her, and - having lived a life of no regrets - she was not afraid to die. She leaves behind a legacy of love, and her memory will be carried forth by all who had the privilege to know her, through our acts of kindness, open hearts, ready smiles, and two armed hugs. Mary was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. Our family would like to offer heartfelt thanks to all who extended their love and support to us these past two weeks through prayers and loving messages of hope and encouragement. Mary's family will receive family and friends in the Wallingford Funeral Home, 809 N. Main St. Ext. on Friday, July 10, from 4 to 8 p.m. A service to celebrate her life will be held on Saturday, July 11, at 1 p.m. in the funeral home. Interment in St. John Cemetery will be private. www.wallingfordfh.com
