by The Publisher
February 15, 2013

Mary Lou (Hendry) Cassidy, in Worcester, February 11, 2013. Mary Lou was the wife of the late Edward R. Cassidy, to whom she was married for 68 years, devoted mother of Sister Marylou Cassidy, CSJ (Stoneham), Dr. E. Robert Cassidy and his wife Dr. Jianne Gimian (Berkley, Ca) and Dr. Laurie Cassidy (Scranton, PA) and her beloved companion, John Sabo (Sedalia, CO). She was the proud Gramma Lou of Arianna Gimian Cassidy and her husband , Matthew Bald (San Francisco, CA).

Born in Worcester, Mary Lou was the daughter of the late Daniel J. and Elizabeth (Carberry) Hendry. She grew up in Medford with her sister Elizabeth (Blackley), who predeceased her. Also surviving Mary Lou are her sisters-in-law Clare (Cassidy) and her husband G. Christopher Condon and Mary Cassidy, as well as many dear nieces and nephews in the Blackley, Condon, Cassidy, and Cocker families.

For more than 50 years, the Cassidy family lived in Holliston, where Mary Lou was active in Town Meeting and St. Mary's Parish, and a supporter of the Holliston Food Pantry. Family and friends are invited to honor Mary Lou by gathering with her family from 2:00-4:00 PM on Sunday, February 17 at Bethany Health Care Center, 95 Bethany Road, Framingham. A Memorial Celebration will commence. (Dates for a Memorial Mass and burial will be shared at a later date.)

Should you wish to make a donation in Mary Lou's memory, the family suggests recipients might be Notre Dame Long Term Care Sunshine Fund, Worcester; Bethany Health Care Center, Framingham; and Rosies Place, Boston, each of which Mary Lou held in high esteem.

The Cassidy family is grateful to the administration, staff and residents of Notre Dame du Lac Assisted Living Community and Notre Dame Long Term Care Center for their loving care of Mary Lou and Ed. Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Barile Family Funeral Home, Stoneham. Barile Family Funeral Homes, Stoneham/Reading, 781. 438 .2280

Old Barns

by Bill Tobin

I noted at least a dozen of these structures within a radius of about fifteen miles, and I am sure there are many more. This is an update of an article published a few years ago. A recent trip to Vermont confirmed that the old barns are getting older.
