Obituary of Mary M. Cadigan

Mary M. (Daly) Cadigan, a longtime resident of Duxbury passed away peacefully on May 23, 2022.  She was 82 years old.  Her loving family was by her side during the last days of her life and when she passed.  She is the loving mother of Jill Cadigan, of Duxbury; Neil Cadigan, of Duxbury and Sean Cadigan of Bethel, ME.  She was predeceased by her daughter, Susan Cadigan.  Mary is the adored grandmother of Megan Cadigan (Matt Fougere) of Squantum, Topher Cadigan of Weymouth, Cameron Christenson of Duxbury, Cole Cadigan of Duxbury and Abby, Leah, Beth and Mikey Yucius, all of Duxbury.  She leaves nieces, nephews and lifelong friends.  She was predeceased by former husbands, Cornelius Cadigan and Christopher Carroll.

Mary was raised in Hyde Park, MA.  She was daughter of Irish immigrants from Galway and took great pride in her Irish heritage.  She was predeceased by all 5 of her siblings. 

Professionally, Mary worked as a Victim Witness Advocate for the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office for several decades.  Her job was very fulfilling to her.  During the years, she received letters from many families expressing their appreciation for her kindness, empathy and support. 

While raising her children, Mary was fondly known around town as “Mrs. C”.  She spent most of her free time attending sporting events with her kids.  She continued this passion with her grandchildren where she spent a lot of time in rinks, fields, courts and just playing in the yard.

Mary was a runner and was often seen around town by many.  She would give a big smile and wave to people when they recognized her.  Her favorite place in the world was Duxbury Beach.   She spent many days there as a young mother and, then, as a grandmother.  Her greatest joy in life was truly her family.  She loved Sunday dinners with the entire family.  She loved to laugh and was deeply involved in the daily lives of her grandchildren.  She loved being outside, she would go on long walks with her grandchildren and since her sense of direction was bad, we would sometimes worry when too much time seemed to pass!  She always returned with a smile on her face and the kids had a funny tale to tell.

Mary was a special lady who will be remembered for her strength, independence, quirky little sayings, big smile and how much she truly enjoyed people.  She will be missed!

Services for Mary will be private.  In honor of her passing, please take a minute to think a good thought of her, smile at someone as they pass, tell someone you love them or simply laugh about something silly.
