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.

Although we had lost touch in recent years, Mary and I were friends for many years, through health scares in high school, to college and working summers at Fay Paper (thanks Dad for employing my friends) to weddings and the rest of our lives. Her travel agent skills were legendary and Jim and I were grateful for her ability to make his many business trips as easy as possible. Also, thanks to Mary and David for introducing my family to Villefranche sur Mer. It was a highlight for my parents and for Jim and I as well. I will miss her smart, wickedly dry sense of humor, her willingness to call out BS and her friendship. I saw her briefly at Wally’s funeral (miss you my friend) and again at our 40th HS reunion, but we never managed to get together after that in spite of repeated invitations to visit us on the Cape. Mary was a good friend to many and my sincerest condolences to David, Jan, Cathline and the rest of the family.

I write with heavy heart at the loss of such a wonderful woman, teacher and example of fortitude. Mary was a joy to see every week at our knitting group on Wednesday mornings and such a warm and welcoming presence. I thank her for introducing me to knitting and never letting me feel " less than" as a beginner. I will miss her humor, wit, expertise and "getting the joke". Rest in peace dear lady; I will truly miss you!

Amazing Mary!

She was a kind and gentle soul with an innate ability to see things for exactly how they were.
Extremely intelligent and a wonderful patient teacher. Her quick wit and incredible sense of
humor gave her a magnetic yet subtle quality. My mentor, my friend, my sister-in-law and my client.
Her memory will live inside of us all forever.

As a second cousin, I can honestly say Mary was a wonderful person! Each time I saw her at a cousin's get-together I enjoyed speaking with her.

She had a great sense of humor and kindness and I will sincerely miss her!
