Condolence & Memory Journal

I met Mary years ago in Scituate when we were in Weight Watchers together. I looked forward to seeing her every week, as she brought her bubbly personality that kept life real. I would continue to see her on my walks around the lighthouse, but had lost touch. I will always remember her true love of life, family, everything beach, and life itself. May she rest in peace with her loved ones gone before her. My thoughts are with her family and all who knew and loved her.

Beautiful Soul Rest In Peace

I am so sorry for your loss. When I moved to Waltham, Mary was the first person to really welcome me and treat me with so much kindness. She was also really, really funny. I will miss her. I am thinking of all of you.

I and my husband live down the street from Mary on Rebecca Road in Scituate. We also live next to the Brennan's who were good friends of Mary from both Waltham and here in Scituate. I would often talk to Mary when she came to visit the Brennan's, when I'd walk by her house, or would see her in the local supermarket. She had a great wit and would always leave you smiling. We miss her.

Our Mom loved your Mom ❤ she was so happy when she found her after so many years. Childhood friends and life long friends. Our Mom Maureen "hart" Bouquet would be at the life celebration services but is currently in the hospital. All of Maureen's children knew your mom and we loved her. We are saddened to hear of her passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you all ❤

My condolences to all of the Keatings. I am sorry to learn of your mother's passing. My memory of her will be of a fun loving woman with an amazing wit. What a sense of humor she had! She brought such joy to those in her company. I shall miss her. May God welcome her into His heavenly kingdom. Let all of us give thanks to God for His gift of her life with us. Go with God, Mary. Safe home.
