Megan “Meg” McCormick

McCormick, Megan “Meg” 53, Jamaica Plain, born December 9, 1963 in Brockton.

Meg, aka, “Ambassador of Goodwill”, finally gained her wings on February 10th succumbing to a 13-year duel with metastatic breast cancer. Pre-deceased by her parents Dick and Pat McCormick, Meg is survived by her twin sister & care giver Maura McCormick of Jamaica Plain, her brother Barry McCormick, sister-in-law Dale and her niece Bridget of Sandwich, her brother Brian McCormick, sister-in-law Mary, nephew Jack and niece Kate of Easton, her aunt Pam Duffy of Belmont and uncle Peter Haley of Osterville, her devoted friend Grace Noonan-Kaye of Peaks Island, ME, her soul mate Marcie Kennedy of Scottsdale, AZ and a raft of McCormick, Duffy and Haley cousins too numerous to mention.

Meg graduated from Cardinal Spellman in 1982 and was named most athletic. She remained an avid sports fan for her entire life. She attended Regis College and later became a Master Carpenter. While Meg held numerous jobs, her three favorites were waitress at the Chart Room on Cape Cod where she spent 13 summers; receptionist at Fenway Community Health, where she met her ex-wife Carla Osberg, and as a Carpenter Local # 33, working on the Big Dig. Meg worked on many of the iconic buildings in Boston and driving around top down with Meg was like being on a professionally “behind the scenes” guided tour of the City of Boston.

Meg was wild about fashion and had a style all her own. She loved her 1967 Lincoln Continental with the suicide doors, any convertible car, the Red Sox, sharing a cold Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, all things Irish, but most of all Meg was passionate about her friendships near and far, deep and wide.

Meg loved her dedicated Dana Farber team and laughed her way through years of blood draws, infusions, taps and support group meetings.

A private celebration for family and friends will be held on Cape Cod this Spring and details will be available at a future date.

In lieu of flowers please hug your loved ones and raise a glass to the good times we had.

    Dear Maura, Barry, and Brian,

    So sorry to hear about Meg’s passing. I always enjoyed working with Meg at The Chart Room. After that, we were Facebook friends. From reading her obituary, Meg appears to have had a very exciting life after the C.R.! My thoughts are with you guys.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Meg who quickly became a ray of sunshine in my day, always greeting me with a warm generous hug.
    Her ever present smile lit up the room and her laughter filled the air with goodness and hope.
    She will forever have a place in my heart and I will smile when I put my car windows down and the heat on, just as she would do in her convertible.
    Rest in peace Meg.
