Mary L Grady

July 27, 1928 ~ December 29, 2019 (age 91)


Mary Lou Grady, age 91, of Braintree passed away peacefully at her son Patrick’s home surrounded by loving family. Born in Boston, she lived in Braintree for over 70 years. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of over 54 years, John. She was the devoted mother of Michael and his wife Ellen, Richard and his wife Lauren, Patrick and his wife Nadia, and Peter and his wife Renee. She was the beloved grandmother, fondly called Nanny to ten grandchildren, Meaghan, Katie, Dennis, Brianna, Kevin, Sean, Erin, Matthew, Neil and Jack. She also leaves behind twelve great grandchildren whom she adored.

Mary loved spending time in her Braintree yard and even made sure to get a bit of raking in this fall. Her biggest joy was her family. A master knitter, she always had a project in process and made sure every one of her family members had a hand knitted Nanny afghan blanket.  She was a proud member of Teamsters Union Local #25, working at Bradlee’s distribution center for over 20 years.
