Obituary

Geraldine Matilda (Kerrigan) Connors, age 89, passed away peacefully in the Norwood Hospital on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, surrounded by her loved ones. Born in Quincy, Massachusetts on May 17, 1927, she was one of 6 children born to the late John Joseph and Matilda Ann (Melanson) Kerrigan. She was raised in North Quincy and attended North Quincy High School with the Class of 1946.

Geraldine married Herbert J. Connors, Jr. of Boston on April 21, 1951 in Quincy. In 1956 they made their home in East Walpole where they raised their seven children. After settling in East Walpole, Geraldine became an active parishioner of Saint Mary's Church where she taught CCD. She took a job as a department manager, working for many years at Almy's Department Store at the Walpole Mall.

Geraldine was a fun-loving, faithful woman, who always put the needs of others before herself. While surrounded by her family in the hospital, when she was asked if she needed anything, her response was "I have everything I need right here."
