OBITUARY:

Mary C. Gomes, a resident of Woburn for many years, passed away at Kindred Hospital in Waltham on Saturday, June 24th, following a long illness.

Born in Somerville eighty-five years ago and raised there, she was the daughter of the late William and Anne (Gavin) Fitzpatrick. Following her marriage to her beloved husband Joseph, who passed away in 1988, she moved with her family to Winchester. In 1960 they took up residence in Woburn, where they raised their family.

Mary worked for Joe’s Catering for a number of years and made many lasting friendships there. Previously she worked in the electronics field, for Transitron of Wakefield.

Her priority in life was her family. She particularly enjoyed Saturday shopping trips with her daughter, and was an integral part of her grandchildren’s lives.

Preceding her in death, along with her husband Joe, were her daughter, Janice Weber, her brother, William Fitzpatrick, and her sister, Margaret Fitzpatrick.

Surviving are her daughter, Marie Santillo and her husband Frank of Woburn, two sons, Joseph Gomes and his wife Francine of Antioch, IL, and Stephen Gomes and his wife Susan of Methuen, and ten grandchildren, Gina and James Santillo, William, Joey, and Jeannette Gomes, Stephen and Pauline Gomes, Sara DiPalermo, Linda Othman, and David Weber and his fiancee Charlene Zdanowicz, and great-grandmother of Jacob Weber.

Relatives and friends are invited to call at the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Tuesday, June 27th, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. A funeral mass will follow at St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street, Woburn, at 10. Interment will take place in Woodbrook Cemetery, Woburn.
