Mary Bridget (Brett) McCarthy

d. April 28, 2018

McCARTHY, Mary Bridget (Brett). Of Quincy, formerly of Dorchester, passed away peacefully at the the Pat Roche Hospice House in Hingham on April 28th, after a long period of declining health, fighting her illness with unbelievable strength and dignity.

She was the daughter of the late Henry Brett and Mary Ann (Brennan) Brett of Dorchester.

She leaves behind her beloved husband, Robert T. McCarthy, devoted mother of Maryellen McCarthy of Quincy, Sean and Michael McCarthy, both of Dorchester, and her beautiful granddaughter, Bridget Lenehan.

She leaves her brothers, Harry Brett and his wife Lucille of Braintree, William Brett and his wife Virginia of Hingham, James Brett and his wife Patricia of Dorchester, and her sister, Margaret McCobb and her late husband William of Weymouth. She is predeceased by her brother John P. Brett. She also leaves behind her brother-in-law Francis McCarthy of Rhode Island.

Mary also leaves her extended family of loving policemen and women. Mary worked at Area C, District 11 police station in Dorchester for 30 years. No one loved or respect the the police more than Mary and she was dearly loved in return. She was truly a mother to them all.

Mary was an avid bowler and champion softball player in her youth. She also enjoyed her semi-annual trips to Foxwoods.

Most painful is the knowledge that she will not be coming home. Her comforting presence and hospitality we took for granted. That loss will slowly heal, but the pain will linger. It is embedded in our memory.

Family and friends will honor and remember Mary's life by gathering for visiting hours in the Murphy Funeral Home, 1020 Dorchester Ave., DORCHESTER, on Tuesday from 4-8 P.M.

Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. Margaret Church of St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish on Wednesday morning, May 2nd, at 10 A.M.

Burial will follow in Cedar Grove Cemetery, Dorchester.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Mary's memory would be greatly appreciated and may be made to the Mary Ann Brett Food Pantry, at St. Margaret Church, 800 Columbia Rd., Dorchester, MA 02125.
