So sorry to have heard of Mary's passing. She was such a good friend to my mother, Bea Burns, and a wonderful neighbor to us on Wheelock Road. It's amazing she lived to 99! What a treasure! Our sincere condolences to all of you from Sheila (Burns) Callahan, and family, Kevin Burns, and family, and Tom Burns and family.

Dear Bill, Charlene & Sam, Brian & Hermie, and Neil & Lorraine, Our deepest condolences on the loss of your Mom.

The video you made of Aunt Mary brings back so many wonderful memories - our visits as kids, the Cape, picnics at the house on Wheelock Rd., family reunions, shopping at the Christmas Shop, and trip to Ireland - all made so special with Mary's love, laughter, and sense of fun!

No wonder she was our Dad's favorite sister!

She truly lived a good life and will be missed by all of us. All our love, Barbara and Tom

My NaNa was the best! I remember her playing ballerinas with me when I was little. She always made brownies when I came to visit and would let me have as many as I wanted. She was the kindest woman I've ever known. I will miss her dearly but, I at least have those memories. Love you, NaNa!

Neil, Brian, Bill and Charlene, I am so very sorry for your loss of your loving mother. She was such a warm person, always looking out for the comfort of others. One of my favorite memories is just sharing a cup of tea with her at her kitchen table. She was such a great person to talk to, and very kind. She joined the rest of the family to take me to Plymouth Rock, the Old North Church, and other historical sights. As we toured Boston, she pointed out streets and houses where family members had lived, buildings where the worked, churches where they worshipped. Her stories gave me a sense of family history I didn't have, and an understanding of the Boston of my father's and grandfather's day.

Mary was loved deeply by all the Walsh Family. A loving compassionate woman. A gift

I'm sorry to hear of Mary's passing. My mother and father, Jim and Doris Diggins, were very good friends with Mary and Henry. Our families often met at parties and other events. Henry and Jim were frequent golfing buddies, and Doris and Mary enjoyed getting together with a circle of their women friends. Henry and Jim died many years ago, and my mother and Mary remained close. We would visit Mary in Marshfield and later when she moved into the nursing home. Sometimes Mary came to visit Doris at her home in Arlington. I always enjoyed visits with Mary. She had a dry sense of humor, she was fun to be with, and she was easy to talk to. She will be missed by everyone. Fondly, Debora Diggins
