  • Marian Quinlan Walsh  - Thank you
    I met Mary as a very, very young child, as she was neighbors of our family's good friends, The Barbera's. I have Mary to thank for the full time job I held at Wood Abbott Jewelers for 7 years. I used to enjoy Mary telling stories of her first job at Woolworths. And her many, many fond stories of her many nieces and nephews, she loved them so. Mary knew EVERYONE in Lowell and everything about them :) May her family find peace and happiness in their fond memories of her.

    I'm sorry for your loss. Mary was an old friend of my mother's and they had many happy times and laughs together. Dinny used to come to our house on Christmas Eve as Santa. We have very fond memories of Mary and Dinny,.

    Sorry to learn of Mary's death. I have been out of Lowell since 1977 but knew Mary and Dinny from my parent's variety store and St. Margaret's. They were both great people.

    As a child, I have memories of going into Wood Abbott with my mother, and being helped by Mary Cox, who was an acquaintance of my mother's. She was always very helpful and a very sweet, nice lady. May she Rest In Peace.
  • Tom Bomil  - Great People
    Mary was a wonderful person as was her husband Dinny. Dinny was my old boss in Lowell and gave me the break I needed to have the career I had in Public Health. I remember Dinny and Mary always as a fun couple. I so enjoyed their fun loving bantering at each other. She was a sweetheart. Dinny was taken way to soon. They are together now, and I am sure having some good laughs. Rest in Peace Mary... tell Dinny I said hello.
