Mary was born at Brockton Hospital to the late James and Dorothy Laing. She grew up in Quincy and attended Quincy High School, graduating in 1963 and attending Quincy College. She worked for and retired from the State of Massachusetts Division of Employment Security. She was a lifelong resident of Hough’s Neck and was deeply involved in the community, serving as President of the Community Council.

Mary will be sadly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her. Mary loved music, singing, reading and art and was an advocate for and friend to all animals (particularly cats). Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a small gathering at Grumpy White’s on Tuesday the 27th from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM.
