Mary Moore nee Connaughton, 94, peacefully passed away July 26, 2023, in Frisco, TX. Formerly of Co. Roscommon, Ireland, Boston, MA. and Chicago, IL. Beloved wife of the late Michael (Mike) Moore. Devoted mother of Pat (Larry) Dondalski of Frisco, TX., Eileen-Moore Oleksy (Tom) of New Port Richey, FL., Maureen (Patrick) Cross, the late Mary Agnes Dziedzic, Francis (Frank) Moore, Lorraine Moore. Loving sister to the late Deliah (Francy) Keogh and James Keogh of Boston, MA. Cherished Grandmother of twelve grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Fond aunt of many nieces and nephews of the U.S. and Ireland.
Mary loved all things Boston. She was a fierce Bruins and Red Sox fan. Neighbors always knew when the Bruins and Black Hawks were on TV. She only watched baseball when the Red Sox were playing. Mary would not hear a negative word against Bobby Kennedy. She enjoyed going out to lunch and shopping with her sister-in-law Christine Moore. She loved to verbally spar and wasn’t happy unless she got the last word. Mary was strong in Catholic faith and had an unyielding sense of right and wrong. You always knew where you stood with Mary. After retiring from her 30 year career at Resurrection Hospital in Chicago, Mary was asked to provide at-home health care for a number of seniors. She gladly cared for her “old ladies” until her children finally convinced her to retire. Mary relocated to Frisco, TX. with her daughter Pat and son-in-law Larry. For the past 10 years, Pat has been her mother’s companion and caregiver.
