WALKER, Mary M. (Higgins) of Brockton, formerly of Holbrook and originally from Dorchester (OFD), passed away unexpectedly, after a brief illness on May 28, 2021, at the age of 83. Born and raised in Boston, Mary graduated from Monsignor Ryan Memorial High School and then later went on to graduate from the Boston City Hospital School of Nursing. Mary began her career as a Registered Nurse at Boston Medical Center to retiring as head nurse at the Franville Nursing Home in Braintree. From being a single mother, to raising her granddaughter, to making an imprint on each one of her five great grandchildren’s hearts, Mary was something more than amazing. She enjoyed spending time with her great grandchildren, playing with her “cards”, telling all her wonderful stories that you couldn’t believe she was a part of, as well as listening to soundscapes while pointing out the oddest things about her favorite songs that were playing. Mary was a strong, tough, loving, beautiful, wise soul that was always on your side and will forever be missed by all who were blessed to have known her. Mary was the loving mother of Lorena M. Rice of Holbrook and the late Burke G. Walker. Daughter of the late Timothy and Sarah Higgins and sister of the late William T. Higgins. Beloved “Noni” to Sara M. Walker and her fiancé Joshua Chang, the late Michael J. Pasquarosa, IV, the late Christopher D. Pasquarosa and Sa Lee. Dear “GiGi” to Maximus, Liliana, Jace, Ronin, Kindin and her soon to be “Baby Girl”. Also survived by her best friend, Lynda Miller – Hageman. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours on Sunday, June 6th from 3:00 – 7:00 PM in the Cartwright Funeral Home, 69 So. Franklin St. (RT. 37), Holbrook. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday at 10:00 AM in the Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Union Cemetery, Holbrook. For directions or to leave a sympathy message for the family, visit
