Mary Morse

April 27, 1925 — December 5, 2010

Mary Cecelia (Tierney) Morse of East Weymouth (and Naples, FL) died peacefully Sunday night December 5, 2010 with her twin sons at either side holding her hand. Born in Dorchester, Mary was a graduate of Monsignor Ryan Memorial, where she was a soloist in the choir. She worked as an overseas telephone operator during W.W. 2 until she met her husband the late Raymond Morse. A retired service manager for Long's Jewelers in South Shore Plaza, Mary had an eye for good jewelry and a way with customers. Her other passion was cooking, as any and all who sat at her famous dining room table can attest. But it was as a mother that she excelled to each of her six grateful children, and as "Aunt Mamie" to her extended family. She also played a mean game of cribbage.

Mary was the beloved wife of 60 years to the late Raymond P. Morse retired District Fire Chief Boston Fire Dept. The daughter of the late Edmond P.and Mary C. (Kearney) Tierney. Loving mother of Paul E. and his partner Pat Phisanbut of Newton, Patricia M. "Patsy" Timberlake and her husband Thomas "Larry" of FL, Daniel F. of Mashpee, David G. and his wife Karen of Pembroke, Dennis G. and his wife Robin of Weymouth, and the late Michael Morse. Sister of Elizabeth Murray of Duxbury and the late John J. Tierney. Also survived by 12 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews.
