Mary was born in Brookline, MA, loving daughter of Bernard J. Sr. and MaryRita A. (Flood) Hutt.  She was raised in Needham, Massachusetts and graduated from Needham High School, class of 1966. 

Mary was a devoted daughter, sister and friend to all who needed her, but her most cherished role was mother and grandmother.  Mary worked hard all her life, sometimes working as many as three jobs at a time to provide for her family.  She worked many years as a private nursing coordinator, dedicating herself to helping others in their time of need.  She enjoyed the simple things in life, especially music, reading and gardening.  She loved taking trips to Nantasket Beach with as many people as she could jam in her station wagon.  Being surrounded by her family was her greatest joy.
