To Mary and her beautiful family.❤ So sorry for your loss.
I married into the Kavanaugh family but my husband Michael
Was always so close to the merner cousins. When my kids were small Mary came to all the birthday party’s in my back yard in dorchester. When I was pregnant with my third child I was hospitalized for a month.
Sonny and Mary came up every day to visit me, bring me candy and flowers and Mary would pray for my baby and yell at sonny because he would try to smoke in my hospital room.
My children spoke very highly of Mary and remember her playing with them and making them pasta in the apartment in west Roxbury.
Everyone that met and knew Mary always left with a good feeling. Her children and grandchildren will be her legacy.

So sorry about Mary’s passing. I adored her. She was the unit secretary on Jordan 4 where I was a nursing assistant then new grad then nurse. She is the one who gave me the nickname “little Marie” When Mary moved to West Roxbury I use to bring her to work with me every day when I was working day shift. She was a sweet lady. She is with her beloved Sonny now. My prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

She was the most thoughtful and kind hearted person that anyone could ever meet. Absolutely brilliant, strong, lovely and always had time to help others. She loved to sing and dance, and loved her family dearly. She is in Heaven now. An Angel with everyone always
