She married Robert Hall in 1962, stayed home to care for her young children, and later worked at Robinson’s News Agency in Malden for many years.
In order to accommodate family and friends with varying beliefs, those traveling long distances, and those who are ill or infirm, two options for visitation will be provided, with no expectation that anyone will attend both. The family would also like to send love and support to those who may not be able to attend for whatever reason, and understand that some may simply want to remember her as they saw her last.
Visitation: Tuesday, February 10th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Boston Cremation 287 Main Street, Malden, MA.
Funeral Mass: Wednesday, February 11th, at 9;00am at St. Joseph’s Church, 790 Salem St., Malden. Immediately following the service she will be put to rest with her beloved husband at Holy Cross Cemetery, Malden.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to your church, a local animal shelter, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease or to the charity of your choice.
