Not sure what to say?

Such a lovely genial lady. Mary was a caring individual always inquiring about you and your family. We feel very blessed to have gotten to know her these past few years.

I am sorry to hear of Mary's death. We were social work colleagues for many years and enjoyed sharing our observations of the work we did in our respective hospital settings. She had a great sense of humor. We also served on the RI Chapter of the Social Worker Leadership in Health Care organization and I know others who participated in this and who were connected to Mary through her work will be saddened as well. My condolences to the Donnelly family.

Mary, I can't tell you how much I'll miss you. You were my sister-in-law, but you became my sister and a best friend. For almost 50 years you were always there, giving love and support to our family is so many ways. And it's only now, because you were so quiet and humble about your service to the community, that we realize how amazing you were in dedicating your life to countless women and families in need. We love you forever....

Mary was such a kind and brilliant person. She felt like another mom to me when Bridget and I were at UVM. She always made me laugh and ha a great laugh herself. What an amazing career as well. I am very sad this light has burned out but I look forward to celebrating her life. She leaves behind such wonderful people and will be missed.

Mary (Healey) Donnelly was an intelligent, caring, thoughtful, and impressive woman who radiated warmth and concern for everyone she met. The O'Connor family will never forget the kindness and personal support Mary gave us all during the long hospitalization of our father following surgery at Rhode Island Hospital. The O'Connor family extends its condolences to the Donnelly and Healey families.
