Mary had many names — Mamie, Mare, Mom — but her favorite was Nana.

She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Dylan Douglas, Thomas and Oliver Normand, Chloe Clisham, Ruby Clisham, Stephanie Clisham and Scott Clisham. Mary leaves behind a very special niece, Jenna Adams, who has always been like a daughter to her; and a nephew, Nicholas Adams; as well as four devoted cousins, Kathryn-Ann Foley, Robert and Carol Stanley and Patti Wheelden.
