Edward Lonergan, 80, originally from Somerville, graduate of Matignon High School (Cambridge), Boston College (Cum Laude), and BU Law (he attained the highest marks of any applicant in the 1968 Bar Exam). He practiced law for over 50 years with, in his words, "reasonable success." He was a member of teams that produced epic Boston area developments, including Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Charlestown Navy Yard, and Admiral's Hill in Chelsea. Despite his many successes in law and business, he jovially referred to himself as one of the “too numerous to mention” crowd. Ed considered his family his greatest achievement and blessing. He is survived by his wife Barbara, his three children, Ted Lonergan and wife, Alissa of Chicago, Jeff Lonergan and his wife Chrissy of Burlington, and Kerry Pescatore and her husband, Bob of Winchester, his grandchildren, Sean, Colin, Olivia, Michael, and Joseph, and his siblings, Ita, Suzanne, Kenneth, and Ellen. He was predeceased by his brother Jackie. He adored his family, and rarely missed an opportunity to express his love. He was generous with his time, money, and wisdom. He is sorely missed and will be forever loved. A wake for Ed will take place at Lane Funeral Home, 760 Main Street in Winchester, MA, on Thursday, February 15, 3 p.m.-6 p.m. The funeral will be at Saint Eulalia Parish, 50 Ridge Street, Winchester, MA on Friday, February 16, at 10 a.m. After the funeral, there will be a private interment (burial) for family members only.

Marlene Elizabeth Herlihy

Jun 27, 1936 - Jan 26, 2024

location-icon

Winchester, MA

Marlene Elizabeth Herlihy, world traveler and career educator, led an incredibly full life, one marked by resilience and determination. Born June 27, 1936, she grew up in a close-knit, loving, working-class family in Somerville, Massachusetts. The extended family occupied both stories of a classic Somerville duplex. After attending Somerville public schools through the 8th grade, Marlene attended Matignon High School, graduating in 1954. She then earned a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from Tufts University in 1958. While at Tufts, she also took numerous Education courses, and the fall after graduation, she began her long career teaching in the Somerville public schools. Marlene met her late husband, Henry (Buddy) Roy Herlihy, when they were 16 years old on a blind date. He also grew up in a Somerville duplex, but he and his twelve siblings and their parents occupied only one floor. The two managed to purchase a small home in Winchester, and eventually built a more spacious one in the town in which to raise their four young boys - Glenn, Mark, Shawn, and Scott. To help with the boys at home, Marlene left full-time teaching and forfeited her status as a tenured teacher. When her husband, Buddy, died suddenly in 1979, Marlene faced the task of raising the boys - ages 17, 13, 11 and 9 - on her own. By then, she had been working her way back into teaching by serving as a substitute teacher in the Somerville system, a job that paid about $22 per day at the time, came without any benefits, and was not always steady. She could only work when teachers were needed on specific days. Following her husband’s death, most presumed that she would need to sell the home in Winchester and relocate. Moving back to the Somerville duplex where several of her family members still lived seemed like the most likely scenario. But Marlene was determined not to disrupt her childrens’ lives further and she found a way to keep the family in their home in Winchester. Eventually, after several long-term substitute teaching assignments, and some struggle (Proposition 2 ½ had tightened municipal budgets), she regained tenure in the Somerville School system, which provided a measure of security and stability in her life and that of her sons. Having experienced poverty, she remained frugal for the rest of her life. But she was always willing to help others in need and to indulge her passions, such as traveling. She made trips around the world, to China, India, Japan, Brazil, Peru, Egypt, South Africa, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, and virtually every country in Western Europe and in Scandinavia. She made some trips with her husband Buddy, and many others with long-time companion Dick Tarpey (Aruba was a favorite of theirs) and with a long list of friends who shared her interest in traveling. In recent years, she made several trips with Larry Haley. When the two traveled to Antarctica in December, 2022, Marlene had succeeded in traveling to all seven continents. Marlene loved cultural events - concerts, plays, musicals, movies - and though not an athlete herself, she was an avid, even a rabid fan of the Celtics and Patriots. Through Dick Tarpey’s work as a statistician for radio broadcasts of BC Football games during the Doug Flutie era and Patriots games when they were good, she became very interested in football. When the Patriots were on TV and an opposing player was gaining yards on a run or after a catch, she would blurt out, “Get him, get him.” And when the game was on the line for any reason, she would get nervous, close her eyes and say “I can’t watch.” She was a true life-long learner. In her late 40s, she earned a Master's degree in Education from Cambridge College. She read 50-60 books a year, in all genres, some for diversion, but many to satisfy her curiosity about the world. She took mini courses through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Tufts University and attended lectures series offered through the Jenks Center in Winchester. She was a member of several book clubs over the years. She loved people and had numerous circles of friends, including those from the Swim and Tennis Club, where she was a member for over 50 years. She frequently got together with her beloved “teacher friends,” and other friends from Winchester and surrounding towns. She stayed in touch with some college classmates. She was proud of and loved to spend time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. While always open to learning new things and experiencing life to its fullest, she took the time to appreciate life. She kept a diary for close to 70 years, in which she would list events that filled each day - gatherings with friends or family, outings to restaurants, movies and shows she saw, etc. At the end of each year, she would list all the good things that had happened - trips she had taken, milestones that had been met, projects around the house that had been completed, etc. She counted her blessings and never took anything for granted. Marene was the beloved wife of the late Henry R. Herlihy. Loving mother of Glenn D. of Hyannis, Mark A. and his wife Theresa of Winchester, Shawn M. and his wife Linda of Wellesley and Scott A. and his partner Colleen of Charleston, SC. Adoring grandmother of Kristen, Amy, Brett, Drew, Katherine, Caroline, Michael, Austin, Mark, Dylan, Christian, Clark and great grandchildren Grace and James. Dear sister of the late Gloria Humphrey and Lawrence Lenane. She was predeceased by her loving companion Richard Tarpey of Burlington. She is survived by her special companion Larry Haley of West Medford. Marlene cherished each one of her many loving nieces, nephews, relatives, and in-laws and will be missed by all. Visiting hours will be held at the Lane Funeral Home, 760 Main St., (Rte. 38) WINCHESTER on Tuesday, January 30 from 3-7pm. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Eulalia Church, 50 Ridge St., Winchester on Wednesday, January 31st at 10am. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend. Interment Wildwood Cemetery, Winchester. For online condolences, please visit www.lanefuneral.com
