Marie A. Meyer, 70

Marie A. Meyer (O’Connell), age 70, died peacefully with family by her side at Kaplan Family Hospice House. She was the loving wife of Christopher Meyer, with whom she shared 40 years of marriage.

Born and raised in Dorchester, she was the daughter of Daniel and Pauline O’Connell, and sister to Paul, Edward and Daniel. Marie graduated from Cardinal Cushing High School and worked for John Hancock for 17 years. She moved to Nahant in 1981 where she dedicated her time to raising her daughter and caring for her family.

Marie loved walking and enjoying the scenery around Nahant, particularly at East Point. She loved traveling near and far with her family, and prided herself on traveling to all 50 states and a majority of national parks with her husband.

Marie had the ability to make friends anywhere she went. Her kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity will be remembered by many.

She is survived by her husband, Christopher; daughter and son-in-law, Diana and Dennis Borg; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Michael Meyer and Barbara Beatty; and nephew and niece, Douglas and Lucy Meyer.
