Mary C. Cavallaro of Medford MA passed away suddenly at home on June 2, 2018. She was 86.
Born in Everett, Mary was a lifelong resident of Massachusetts and spent her time between Medford and Cape Cod where she had homes.
Upon graduation from college, Doctor Mary Cavallaro taught Chemistry and Physics at Salem State College until she retired.
Mary enjoyed traveling during summer breaks to far away destinations. She loved to see the world and had so many great stories to tell from all her travels.
Mary loved to spend summers on Cape Cod sitting in her sun room reading and putting puzzles together. She was an amazing tour guide, knowing every fun place to go and every great place to eat.
If you visited her on the Cape, you know she wouldn't want you to sit around...she would say "go, I've seen everything here 50 times over".
Mary had a heart of gold. She touched so many lives with her kind gentle nature. She will be missed.
Mary is survived by her brother in law, Giussepe Cavallaro of Everett MA, many cousins and all the friends she made throughout her lifetime. She was the daughter of Giussepe & Domenica Cavallaro of Medford MA and a sister to Nancy & Aggie.
A viewing for Mary will be held Saturday June 23, 2018 from 10am-11am at Gaffey Funeral Home, 43 High Street, Medford MA. Burial to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Everett MA. To send flowers or condolences please visit www.gaffeyfh.com
