Obituary for Mary Elizabeth (Healy) Sherry
Mary Elizabeth (Healy) Sherry, age 87, of the Lordship section of Stratford, beloved wife of the late James Sherry passed away Thursday, December 24, 2015 in Bridgeport Hospital. Mrs. Sherry was born March 31, 1928 in Pawtucket, RI, daughter of the late Edward Patrick and Anna Mae (Brooke) Healy.

Mary attended schools in Pawtucket and graduated from Pawtucket High School. She worked for thirty years for Industrial National Bank in Rhode Island, before retiring to move to Connecticut. In 1976, she married James R. Sherry and moved to the Lordship Section of Stratford, CT where she resided until her death. Mary was a devoted and active member of Our Lady of Peace Church. In 2009, she received the St. Augustine Medal to honor her many years of service to the church. She was active in a number of local activities and talented in numerous crafts, including cake decorating and chair caning. Mary was proud of her English and Irish heritage and enjoyed two visits to Ireland.

In addition to her beloved husband Jim in 2006, she was predeceased by her brothers Edward P. Healy, Jr. and John Healy, her cousin and close friend Gertrude Sullivan and by 3 nephews and one niece. She is survived by a number of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.

Her nephew Henry Healy and his wife Lynne would like to thank Mary's wonderful friends in Stratford. The food, the rides, and errands you provided were enormously helpful, but even more important were the many visits and calls that made Mary's life so meaningful before and during her long illness. They also thank Arlene, Mary's live-in aide, whose care allowed her to return home for the last month of her life.

Friends are invited to attend a Funeral Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at 10:00 by meeting directly in Our Lady of Peace Church, 651 Stratford Road, in the Lordship section of Stratford. Interment will follow in St. Michael's Cemetery, Pawcatuck, CT.

As per Mary's wishes, there will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Our Lady of Peace Sanctuary Fund or to a charity of one's choice.
