Mary was born March 25, 1934 in Newton, a daughter of the late Francis and Loretta (Welch) Kiley. Raised in Newton she graduated from St. Bernard's High School in West Newton.

She had also worked at Alpha Industries in Woburn and ETC Corp. in Waltham.

She loved her home and was most happy when family was gathered for one of her signature meals…especially on Sunday's. "Mamie" as everyone called her, adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
