COYNE, Mary ‘Maureen’ J. (Fitzmaurice), of Arlington, at the age of 82. Passed peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family on December 1, 2018, after a courageous battle with Cancer. Beloved wife of the late Mickey Coyne. Loving mother of Michael W. Coyne of Arlington, Fiona McKenna and her husband Mark of Billerica, and Thomas Coyne and his wife Sarah of Burlington. Cherished grandmother of Cayla and Chad McKenna, and Leah and Dillon Coyne. She was born in Ballygar, Co. Galway, Ireland to the late Thomas Fitzmaurice and Agnes (Cunningham).

Mary was devoted to her family and loved spending time with her four grandchildren. She was the best ‘Nana’ they could have asked for. Throughout the years you would frequently se her attending her children’s sporting events and watching and enjoying seeing her son Tom coach basketball. In her spare time she enjoyed crocheting and knitting where she made plenty of blankets and scarves for her family. As her daughter got older, she enjoyed teaching her how to cook by sharing her secret recipes.

She is also survived by her loving brother Thomas Fitzmaurice of Ireland, brother in law of Christopher Coyne and his wife Josephine of Ireland, brother in law Michael McGovern and sister in law to Margaret Fitzmaurice, and many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. Predeceased by Seamus Fitzmaurice, Bridie Harkins, Teresa Canning, and sister in law Philomena “Baby” McGovern.

Private Condolence


Posted at 07:21am
My deep deep condolences to the Coyne/Fitzmaurice family: May you reflect on the precious memories of your loved one. I would like to share what helped us when our precious daughter died and later when my precious husband fell asleep in death as well. I appreciated the calls and visits from all over the U.S. but I recall just sitting down and reading different Scriptures and meditating on them. It was so comforting to read that God cares for me personally... (1Peter 5:6, 7). Yes, He cares, He sees our pain. And, He Jehovah God will in His due time do away with All sicknesses & death (Isaiah 33:24 & Isaiah 25:8). He is indeed a God of comfort. Oh, wow He promises the hope of seeing our precious loved ones again (John 5:28, 29) and says where (Psalms 37:11). He always keeps His word. I hope that these few Scriptures were of some comfort to you as they were to me.
