We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Wolfeboro
Mary Theresa Hammond, a long-time resident of Wolfeboro, died on Sunday the 26th of June, 2022 at the age of 93. She passed at home surrounded by family and friends. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
Born on January 20, 1929, in Springfield, Ma., Mary spent her youth in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, the daughter of Frederick J. and Mary Kervick; she had three siblings, Joan, Kathlene, and Daniel. After graduating from high school, she went to New Rochelle College in New York City and earned a Bachelor’s degree. During that time, Mary met her true love and husband, Frank. Together they raised four lovely children, and before moving full-time to Wolfeboro in 1985, she had a career at Trinity College and JC Penny’s Distribution Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
During her retirement in Wolfeboro and Vero Beach, Fla., Mary hosted international students, traveled in Europe, and enjoyed painting, art, and gardening. On a memorable trip to the Vatican, she had an audience with Pope John Paul II to beatify Reverend Edmund Rice, who was also a distant relative from Ireland. This was a proud moment for her. She was also a devout attendee at St. Katharine Drexel Church in Alton. Her sense of humor and kind heart will be missed. Mary is survived by her brother Daniel Kervick and his wife Claire, four children, Frank and partner Jane, John and wife Lauren, Mary K. and Maureen, and six grandchildren, Colleen, Danny, Sean, Kelsey, John, and Laura, and two great-grandchildren Lexi and Damien and many nieces and nephews.
A funeral service will be held on July 25, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Katharine Drexel Church in Alton, NH. Burial will be in their private family cemetery.
