Eulogy for Mary T. Quill

 Read by Brooke Alana Mansfield, January 21, 2022 at the Funeral Mass of Mary T. Quill

First I will be reading memories of my Grandmother as written by my Mom, Bernadette:

My mother was sweet, fun-loving and adventurous.  She had unconditional love for her entire family, her friends, and her cats.  She was always willing to have company, to cook for a crowd, and to make sure everyone’s favorite dish was on the menu. When she was a young mother with four little girls to care for, I’m sure we asked a million questions.  And Mom would just start singing to us “Que sera, sera.  Whatever will be, will be.   The future’s not ours to see.   Que sera, sera.  What will be, will be.” 

Mom taught us by example to be good Christians and to be strong, resilient, optimistic and open minded.  She taught us to accept change, to be adaptable, to be hard working, and to always care for others.

 Mom and I spent lots of time together, going to lunch, going shopping, and going to the beach.  She loved the sun, the water, and everything about the beach.  We were so comfortable together and we always had fun.  Those every day, little normal things we did together will be what I miss the most.  They are among my most precious memories. Mom was loved so much by so many people and I feel blessed to have been able to spend so much wonderful time with her.  What will be, will be…For eternity..Mom.

Next I will read Memories written by my Aunt, Beverly Sorgente

One word to describe my mother was Kind.  What I wanted most to learn from her was kindness. She sewed our clothes, pretty dresses and coats.  She taught us how to sew.  She competed on roller skates and won lots of trophies.  She sailed the Caribbean for many years and enjoyed every minute.  She was my friend. . . .  She always wanted to have fun.  She’d call me and say “What adventure will be going on this week?”  When Keith and Brian were little she would make stacks of French toast for them, as many pieces as they wanted.  She also played lots of games with them, especially Yahtzee.  At the end of the day she would sit down and her eyes would close and she’d say “I’m only resting my eyes.”

Memories as written by my Aunt, Jeanette Buonora:

Mommy was our noble example.  She was a woman of strength, joy, and love.  She taught us how to build a good life, and how to follow our dreams.  She showed strength when life’s circumstances never got her down.  She showed joy when she roller skated, played games, made new friends, and sailed the open seas.  She showed love when she cared for us, sewed for us, cooked for us, taught us to be Christians, and hugged us ‘til it hurt.   Mommy had a good life, a spectacular life.  There are many here, and many who have passed who love her, and were touched by her goodness and devotion.  I will forever hear her voice, as I drift off to sleep each night saying to softly “sweet dreams”…

Nana, You are always loved and never forgotten.  May your Soul Rest in Peace.
