Mary E. Currie

October 18, 1934 — March 12, 2024

Stow, MA

Mary E. (McMakin) Currie, 89, of Stow, MA, passed on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at home, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of thirty-four years to the late Donald V. Currie, also of Stow, MA.

Mary was born in Cambridge, MA, on October 18, 1934, to her late parents Russell McMakin and Caroline (Silva), and was raised in Lexington, MA, before relocating to Stow, MA, where she resided with her family for fifty-six years until her passing.

Mary is survived by her son Brad Currie of Stow, MA; her daughters Pamela Nashawaty of Sterling, MA, and Caroline Sharma and her husband Nick of Boxborough, MA; her daughter-in-law Barbara (Wellington) of Framingham, MA; her grandchildren Rachel and Neil Sharma of Boxborough, MA; as well as other relatives and friends. She is predeceased by her husband Donald; her parents Russell and Caroline; and her son Russell Currie.

Mary graduated from Holy Cross High School in Lexington, MA, and went on to attend Boston Teachers College. She worked as a telephone operator at New England Telephone, and later for Draper Labs for a short period of time before taking time away from work to raise her family. When her children had grown, Mary went back to work for Digital Maynard in their Concord Annex before retiring in 1993.

Mary was a devout Catholic, and a faithful parishioner at St. Isidore Catholic Church in Stow, MA. She enjoyed attending rock concerts with her children, and loved nature, lending special fondness toward flowers, birds, and beaches. Mary loved to travel the globe with her husband, even after he passed in 1994. Her favorite and most memorable trip of all was her trip to Turkey. More than anything, Mary loved her family, and cherished her time spent with them.

Mary was a memorable woman. She had a giving spirit, and she was always happy. She was the embodiment of grace, and class. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
