Marilyn (Mellen, Broadley) Chiasson, died peacefully this week in Hingham, MA.
Marilyn spent her early life in Roslindale and was a graduate of Saint Clair’s High School and went on to complete a degree in business school. As a young woman, Marilyn enjoyed summers on Cape Cod and working in an office. She married in 1967 and moved to Hightstown, New Jersey, where she lived until the early 1990’s. Marilyn moved to Cape Cod in 1990 where she lived until moving to Hingham’s Queen Ann Nursing Home in 2018.
Marilyn is predeceased by her adoptive parents, Benjamin and Mary Mellen, her biological mother, Marie McGrath (Fasinelli) and her brother, Robert Mellen. She is survived by her brother, Richard Mellen and her children and grandchildren, Glenn, Michelle, Victoria and Alexis Broadley in Skowhegan, Maine; Mark, Sophia and Ellsie Broadley in Hanover, Massachusetts and Shellie, David, Nathan and Kaylee Carr in Albany, New York.
Marilyn had many jobs in her life, but found the time she worked for Elder Services on Cape Cod the most rewarding. She retired in 2017, which allowed her to spend time with her family and her friends at Cape Cod Apartments and volunteer at the Soup Kitchen at the Falmouth Service Center.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the family is not planning an in-person service at this time.
Friends and family members are encouraged to share a photo and memory of Marilyn on the Marilyn Chiasson Memorial group page on Facebook.
