Mary Reynolds Obituary

Mary A. (Andrews) Reynolds – Salem, NH


Mary A. (Andrews) Reynolds passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at her home on January 26, 2024. Born in Boston, MA, on September 16, 1932, to the late Walter and Delia (Dunnigan) Andrews.  She was the resilient and caring sister among twelve siblings, whose bonds were built on deep familial love and shared history.


Mary’s journey led her to the love of her life, the late Patrick Reynolds, and together they planted their roots in Somerville, MA. Their home became a haven of warmth, laughter, and countless memories as they raised their ten devoted children: Betty Ann Healy (Jimmy) of Listowel, Co. Kerry, Ireland; Patrick Reynolds (Maureen) of Brockton, MA; Mary Yoston (Billy) of Salem, NH; Eileen Reynolds of Salem, NH; Ellie Reynolds (Sean Mannion) of Billerica, MA; Tommy Reynolds (Mary-Jo) of Billerica, MA; Cornie Reynolds (Kathy Sylvester) of Lakeland, FL; Barbara Tibbetts (Paul) of Salem, NH; Doreen O’Connor (Jeff) of Lyons, NE; and Kathy Eisan (pre-deceased husband, Peter) of Weare, NH. Mary was a loving nana to 25 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren, each of whom she cherished deeply.


Her wisdom, kindness, and indomitable spirit were a guiding light to her expansive family, leaving a legacy of love that will endure through generations. Mary’s life was a testament to the power of family, faith, and community. She was a woman of incredible strength, unwavering in her dedication to her loved ones. Her home was always open, her table always set for another, and her heart always ready to love more. Mary’s passing leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her spirit will forever remain a pillar of strength and love in the family she so adored.


In honoring Mary’s life, her family invites friends and loved ones to a service that will celebrate her remarkable journey. Details of the service will be shared, honoring Mary’s wish for a gathering filled with love, remembrance, and the joyous celebration of a life beautifully lived. Mary’s legacy will continue to inspire and influence all who were blessed to know her, as she rests in peace with her beloved Patrick and the ancestors who preceded her in the journey beyond.
