Mary K. (Moy) Newsham, age 72, of Millis, passed away after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. A wonderful wife and mother, Mary is survived by her beloved husband of 48 years, Larry Newsham and her loving daughters, Kimberly Donovan and her husband Jim, of Millis, and Kristen Turco and her husband Michael, of Northborough. Also surviving Mary is her sibling, Irene Sou and her husband Lai Fou. Mary also leaves behind 4 grandchildren, 1 step-grandchild and 4 step-great-grandchildren. Mary was the daughter of the late Chai Lai and Lew She Moy of Quincy.

One of the pioneering women of her time, Mary had a 35 year career as a TV technician at WCVB Channel 5 in Needham. She became a “mother” of the station, and took many of her colleagues under her wing, providing great mentorship and friendship. Some have credited her with the generous maternity leave policy.

Mary was always known for her unwavering love and support of others, her strength, warmth, positivity, hugs, and her smile. Mary loved keeping the long-lost art of writing letters and cards to family and friends alive, attending WCVB luncheons with her former coworkers, playing card games (most recently digitally on her iPad), and was especially devoted to her two closest grandchildren, Rebecca and Emma. She will be remembered for always selflessly taking care of everyone.

Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, from 2:00 PM until 6:00 PM at Roberts Mitchell Caruso Funeral Home, 15 Miller St., Medfield, MA 02052. All guests are asked to wear face coverings and to observe the current social distancing guidelines.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you please make donations to the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA.

Just like everyone else who worked with and was supported in their work at CVB, by Mary. I too, owe her a debt of gratitude for seeing me through my early years at Ch. 5. Nobody appointed her our mentor, but she knew what needed to be done and if your shift included Mary that day, at least you knew you were in good hands. We all will miss her at the next reunion.

Godspeed to Mary Newsham. She brought such warmth and kindness to us new kids at WCVB, there has never been another like her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this trying time.

Hard to believe such a vital, caring person is gone. Mary was the warmest, sweetest person I worked with in a quarter century at CVB. God rest her good soul.

When I started at WCVB, it was 37 years ago. It was very intimidating to finally be hired at a TV station that was considered the best in the country. There was always one person that stood out that would be there to help me with any questions I had and that person was Mary. She really did take everyone under her wing and helped people whenever she could. Mary cared about people and it showed every day. Bob Oliver

I worked with Mary for my first 5 years at WCVB. I was one of those she "took under her wing" a lovely person all around. I am sad to hear this news. Mary and her family are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you Mary. RIP. :(
