Passed away peacefully in her home on the morning of Monday, September 28, 2020, surrounded by her husband David Hanna, and her sisters Cathline DeWitt and Jan Reynolds. She was 68 years old.
Mary was born in Natick, MA on May 1, 1952 and grew up in Medfield. She attended Medfield Public Schools and graduated in 1970. After High School, she attended Westfield State University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She went on to be co-owner of the former Medfield Travel Services.
She was an accomplished fiber artist and shared her talent and love of knitting by teaching the art of knitting to others. Her knitting, needlepoint, and original doll house miniatures leave a legacy of treasured creations. She was curious about the world and traveled widely with her husband.
Mary was the daughter of the late Walter (Pug) and Helen Reynolds and the beloved wife of David R. Hanna. She was sadly predeceased by her brother Wally, but is survived by her sisters Cathline DeWitt and her husband Pat of IN, and Jan Reynolds and her partner Paul Chadwick of MI, her sister-in-law Debbie Reynolds of FL, and on her husband’s side by brother Jon Hanna and his wife Mary, sister Tish Crotty and her husband Mike, and sister Jill Davies; all of England. Mary also leaves behind 10 nieces and nephews as well as 8 grand nieces and nephews.
A service celebrating Mary’s life will take place in the coming days. Due to the current Public Health and Safety restrictions this will be a private family service. In lieu of flowers the family would prefer memorial donations in Mary’s name to a charity or worthy organization of one’s choosing.
