|Let the memory of Mary be with us forever|
"I met Bill's mother, Mary Kennedy in Boston when I first moved here to work at Bostom Logan airport, the Fall of 2002.
( I just happen to be in Boston at this moment. )
What a sweetheart. I was invited to the family Thanksgiving dinner; which was terrific. I was welcomed & truly appreciated the holiday.
She & her husband extended good advice to me & I found a cute place in the North End of Boston.
Being Italian, it was a perfect location.
They had me to dinner multiple times & drove me around Quincy, too.
As a newcomer to Boston, it was a wonderful start to acclimate to Boston; a bit colder than my native California.
Truly a gracious & classic lady.
Blessings to her family.

"Can not believe 2 years have passed. Much has changed in my life due to her late life illnesses. I think often of you..."
"Frank and beans at Aunt Mary's... Caroline, Anna, and Pat will all attest to how much we loved visiting her with our father! Too many great memories throughout my childhood to pinpoint just one. Her trademark high-tops and the bright yellow buggie will always be a standout. Definitely missing her a lot!"
"I never met Mary, but I do know Bill, and his character shows what a wonderful Mom she was. May she rest in eternal peace."
"Here in Florida I got my Quincy Sun and learned of Mary's passing. Mary was my neighbor and what a wonderful woman she was.
We met many years ago. She always had a happy smile and joyful greeting whenever we met. She was the life of the party when she came to visit at my home. Mary loved talking to my husband Bill and if driving, would stop traffic to talk to him on East Squantum St.
Mary gave me the courage to wear red sneakers with pride.
We will miss her ….."
"My Sincere Sympathy to the Kennedy and Walsh Families on the passing of my cousin Mary. She was always a very happy and joyful person. I know that you will all miss her. Love and Happiness to all of you."
You have run the race. May your eternity be all you hoped for in the innocence of your childhood. Heaven! Certainly my fondest memories are of the spontaneous visits my father would make to your place with me in tow. I'd have a cookie and you would have a kind and accepting word for my Dad, Jim. I also recall you and Nancy at his bedside after one particularly painful and life threatening toot, your compassion was a great lesson in family, acceptance and recovery. Thanks, rest in peace."
"We are sorry to hear of Mary's passing. She was a wonderful
neighbor always upbeat. wearing her jazzy sneakers, listening to
Irish music on the radio on Saturdays in the summer on the deck.
Wayne and Joe was always around to fix her tv, especially important
on Saturday nites so she would be ready for Lawrence Welk.
She was always so grateful no matter what they did for her. We all
will miss her waving to us from the window. May she rest in peace,
Our condolences to Bill and Joe. Neil, Mary, Wayne and Joe."
"Maryiska: My big Sister. We enjoyed many luncheons in the south end which I was not very comfortable being there. She was a Free Sprit and got along with everyone.
I'll miss her, and especially that Smile of our Mom's. She will always be my big Sister as I can remember her IRON DONUTS she gave out when I crossed the line.
My Love to All, Joe"
"Mary was my neighbor. She was bright, energetic, fun loving and young at heart- a real people person. I have only known Mary for the past few years but was always inspired by her upbeat attitude, her positive energy and her wonderful sense of humor.
I respect Bill for his selflessness in coming to care for Mary for the past two years when she needed him most. The comfort, love and support that he provided meant the world to Mary and allowed her to be as independent as she could be, which was so important to her.
That smile and wave, an occasional glass of wine on her back deck and those phone calls to fix her tv will be missed.
May she rest in peace."
"So sorry to learn of Mary's passing. Mary was my neighbor and friend for many years. Mary was a lively, fun woman. She loved tooling around in her little Volkswagen bug. She always made me laugh. Mary was a bright spot in our neighborhood. Mary was blessed in the last two years to have her wonderful son, Bill, move back home to provide support and companionship. I will miss looking across the street and seeing Mary smiling and waving hello."
