Obituary for Mary Elizabeth Cassidy

Mary Elizabeth Cassidy (nee Hennessey) died on Friday September 21, 2018  at her home following a long illness as a result of a fall.  She was 87 years of age.

Born in Brooklyn, where she grew up until moving to Manhattan, Mary attended St. Joseph’s in Peekskill, NY following the death of her mother Helen and completed her grade school there.  She was adopted by Miss Beatrice Brown at age 16 and relocated to Manhattan. Mary graduated from St. Jean Baptiste High School and attended Hunter College.  She is predeceased by her parents, her adoptive Aunt Bea, her brothers John, Robert and Raymond Hennessey.

Mary married Kevin A. Cassidy in 1954.  Mary worked as an executive secretary in the offices of the National Association of Manufacturers in Radio City prior to her marriage.  Mary was a member of the Child of Mary organization at St. Jean Baptiste High School and a member of the Choir.

After marriage, Mary traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Middle East and the Far East while supporting her husband’s business career.  While raising her family in Morristown, Mary enjoyed the many years she worked as secretary to the Assumption School principal.

Mary is survived by her loving family: three sons, Kevin A. Cassidy Jr. and his wife Donna Cassidy ( Siergiej) Mark R. and Richard J and one daughter Karen M. Cafferty (Cassidy) and her husband Gerard Cafferty, two granddaughters Erin M. Cafferty and Meaghan L. Cafferty and a variety of nieces and nephews.
