Mary-Lynn Cosgrove Parenteau Obituary 1/28/1943 - 1/24/2024 It is with great sadness that the family of Mary-Lynn Parenteau of Waxhaw, NC share the news of her passing on January 24th, 2024. Mary-Lynn was surrounded by her loved ones in the moments and days prior to her passing at the age of 80. Mary-Lynn is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Alan Parenteau, her dearest sons, of whom she was deeply proud; Robert (Andrea) of Carmel, IN, Daniel (Heather) of Waxhaw, NC, Jon (Kathryn) of Charlotte, NC, and her beloved grandchildren; Matthew, Jack, Will, Ally and Anna (Robert/Andrea), Austin, Jace, Zac, and Jud (Daniel/Heather), Caroline and Jake (Jon/Kathryn). Mary-Lynn is preceded in death by her son, Matthew Jon Parenteau. Mary-Lynn was born to Daniel Joseph and Anne Catherine (Parker) Cosgrove on January 28, 1943 in Cambridge, MA. The eldest of five siblings, sister to Daniel (Tina) Cosgrove of Ashburn, VA, Casey Johnson of Taunton, MA, preceded in death by Anne Pappas (Paul) and Stephen Cosgrove. Mary-Lynn was raised in Cambridge, MA and from a young age, put her family first. She attended Cambridge High & Latin and graduated in 1960 from Oliver Ames High School in Easton, MA. Mary-Lynn continued her education at Chandler School for Women In Boston, MA. Mary-Lynn and Alan married on December 6, 1969 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Easton, MA. They went on to create a warm, supportive, and close-knit family home for their sons in Acton, MA, where they lived for 41 years. Mary-Lynn was a loving, dedicated wife, a caring, protective and inspiring mother, and an adoring grandmother, her grandchildren affectionately call, “Mimi.” She was humble, passionate and faithful in every aspect of her life. Deeply supportive of her children and grandchildren in their academic studies and athletic pursuits, Mary-Lynn was honest, fair, funny if not a bit snarky, strong in her convictions, and unwavering in her devotion. Instilling a signature competitiveness and drive in her children, Mary-Lynn found joy in attending swim meets, golf matches and baseball games, encouraging them to always do their absolute best, and be strong in the face of adversity. With a meticulous attention to detail, throughout her life she enjoyed knitting & sewing, as well as keeping an immaculate home. After years of being out of the formal workforce raising her family, Mary-Lynn had the determination to achieve her real estate license in her 40's. She went on to be a passionate, successful real estate broker for York Associates and Acton Real Estate. She prioritized time with family and close friends above everything, and had fond memories of Tuesday Scotchies at Maynard Country Club, summer days at the pool, and going out to Friday night dinners at the 99 or Crossroads with Al. Mary-Lynn was a longtime member of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church in Acton, MA. Mary-Lynn and Alan became members of Providence Country Club in 2016, and moved to Waxhaw, NC with children and grandchildren nearby for gatherings at a moments notice. Mary-Lynn leaves a legacy of love, dedication and perseverance that will live on in the lives of her family and all who knew her well. Mary-Lynn will be remembered as an extraordinary wife and mother, a sincere and loyal friend, a woman of strength and fortitude who made her marriage, family and faith the center of her life. The family would like to extend many thanks to the Doctors & Nurses at Novant Health Matthews Medical Center in Matthew, NC for their exceptional care of Mary-Lynn at the end of her life. A private service is planned at Acton Funeral Home followed by burial at Mt. Hope Cemetery.
