Centerville – Mary Joan McCarthy, 85 of Centerville died February 11, 2020.  Born July 23, 1934 in Boston, MA to John J. Regan and Nora (Egan) Regan.   She was the devoted and beloved wife of Thomas F. McCarthy, a loving sister, compassionate and supportive friend and an all-around incredible person.

Mary grew up in Roslindale and graduated from Archbishop Central High School in South Boston.  She began working at Shawmut Bank in 1953 and because of her strong math skills she quickly rose to the level of Loan Officer.  She spent 39 years at the bank before retiring.  During her time at Shawmut she excelled at her job and made many lifelong friends. 

She was married to her Tommy for over 57 years.  Together they made a lifetime of memories and brought joy to many. Mary loved spending time with family and friends and laughing.  She had an infectious laugh that brought a smile to the face of anyone who heard it. 

In addition to her beloved husband, she is survived by her sister Anne Meland (Ed), brother John Regan (Joanne), several nieces and nephews, extended family members and countless friends - all of whom feel they were blessed to have known her.
