Mary was born on April 27, 1933 in Carraroe, Co Galway, Ireland. She had seven sisters and brothers. After moving to Boston, she worked as a Nanny for a while. A spark hit and she fell in love and married Coleman F Flaherty, also from her hometown in Ireland. They had seven children together and life got a little crazy. Mary took care of her family working overnights at Gillette for 27 years. No matter how crazy life became or how tight the income was, Mary always found love in her heart to give what she could to others. She was always there for family, friends and neighbors if someone needed a helping hand. She was loved by many and will leave a big hole behind.
