Born in Boston, Mary grew up in Braintree and graduated from Braintree High School. She then went on to graduate from Quincy Junior College. Mary had worked as a Registered Nurse for many years at Quincy Medical Center and South Shore Hospital, but her favorite place was working as the school nurse at Archbishop Williams High School where both her sons attended. Mary enjoyed scrapbooking family memories and knitting blankets and scarves for her loved ones.
