1930 - 2017
SLATTERY, Joan Joan Slattery, 86, of Boston and Juno Beach, passed away Friday in Jupiter, Florida. The cause of death was heart failure. She was born Joan Marie Mulhern on August 24th 1930 to parents Joseph Mulhern and Gertrude McNulty. She attended the Newton Country Day School before attending Manhattanville College in New York City. She married John Slattery in 1953 and together they raised six children: Ellen, Nan, Julie, Lee, John and Peter. She is survived by her husband and children as well as seven grandchildren: Maggie, Luke and Rose Kinnealey, Casey, Sophia and CJ Slattery, and Harry Slattery. She is also survived by a brother, Richard Mulhern of Florida and a sister, Dorothy Carroll of Massachusetts. After raising her children she went back to Bentley College and earned a CPA degree. She worked for many years at The Flatley Company in Braintree and in the comptroller's office at Babson College in Wellesley. She was a devout Catholic and a regular attendee at the Corpus Christi Parish in Auburndale, and St Paul's Church in Wellesley. She was an active volunteer with the March of Dimes, as well the Perkins School where for years she read to the blind. She was also president of the Ace of Clubs charitable organization. She was a long time member of Woodland Golf Club in Newton where she won multiple club champion titles in golf as well and singles and doubles tennis. She was also a loyal fan of all four Boston Sports teams. She travelled the world with her family, took classes in many subjects that interested her later in life, and was always an avid reader. Nothing made her happier than spending a Fourth of July on the beach in Scituate with her family, the Boston Pops playing in the background. She was a generous, thoughtful, funny, intelligent woman who lived life to its very fullest and will be deeply missed by many. Visiting Hours: A service will be held at St John the Evangelist Parish, 9 Glen Rd., Wellesley, on Saturday March 18th at 11 a.m. A reception will follow at Woodland Golf Club, 1897 Washington St., Auburndale. Please come and celebrate the wonderful life of our Joanie.
