O’Connor, Mary B. of Quincy, age 82, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2023.

Born in Dorchester, she was the oldest of 6 children. After graduating from St. Margaret’s High School (MRN), she entered the community of the Sisters of Charity, Halifax Nova Scotia. This is where she began her teaching career. Mary had a passion for teaching and a love of language. For many years, she worked at Snug Harbor Elementary School in Quincy heading the Writing Workshop and working directly with students who meant the world to her. She inspired many students with her love of reading. There are many families in Germantown who still treasure the books their children made with Mary. She was a loving and generous woman who will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Daughter of the late Thomas and Blanche (Cosgrove) O’Connor. Cherished sister of Thomas O’Connor of VA, James O’Connor of Revere, Robert O’Connor of London, and the late John and William O’Connor. Loving aunt of Thomas O’Connor, Erin Simione, and Michael O’Connor.  Longtime significant other of Robert Oullette and his children Janine, Bob, Ron, and Randy.
