This was the second death, the Corbett family has had to endure in eleven days. On Monday, November 6th, one of Mary’s first cousins, Margaret A. “Peggy” Long’s funeral mass was celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church.

Born & raised in Revere, Mary was one of six (6) children born to the late Francis A. & Mary Doris (Anderson) Corbett. Mary was a graduate of Immaculate Conception Grammar School and an alumna of the Immaculate Conception High School, Class of 1962, Revere. She was a 10 year member of the Immaculate Conception Reveries Drum & Bugle Corps., a time in Mary’s life, where her many talents would show themselves. She held many part-time positions at restaurants and the mercantile industry. In 1987, she sought a position with Fidelity Investments & with her talents & work ethic, she quickly rose to Assistant Vice President of Operations, as well manager. She maintained her position until retiring in 1997. Still young and full of ambition, she sought entrance into the work force at Chelsea Clock performing the same type of skills as Operations Manager. Her beloved husband of almost 50 years, Edward F. Cartwright, Jr., died unexpectedly on June 25, 2011. In 2013, she relocated & moved with her son, Ronald to Derry, N.H. She was most happy with the move & although her love for the city was strong, the distance was not an impediment.

    Dear family,
    I am a friend of Noreen and Dick Murphy. I remember how close you all were, and how much Mary and your family were to them. I met Mary several times many years ago, and she welcomed me into her home with kindness. Deepest condolences.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers as you bury Mary. I only met her at the time of Ed’s Funeral, but she struck me as one classy lady. I pray you be comforted by the thought of your Mom and dad being together again.

    Dear Cousins,
    I know I have been far away in every sense of the word for many years but my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad and painful time. I’m sure my Dad’s heart is aching. I have very fond memories of my cousin Mary Doris and my wonderful Uncle Frannie and Aunt Doris. I know they are all together now.

    God bless,

Send your condolences.
