Mary Marno

MARNO, Mary - Passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family and in the arms of her beloved daughter Anne, on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 at the Meadows of Dorchester at 89 years of age, after a long and courageous battle with dementia.

The two sisters were sent ahead of their parents and siblings to establish a home for the family to immigrate to. Both Mary and Margaret worked tirelessly to accomplish this, and after a few short years had a home ready for the family, who followed in 1953. During this time Mary met William John Marno and the two were married July 16, 1955 at St. Patrick's Church. Mary and Bill went on to have three children Anne, Theresa, and William.
