Mary Theresa Sheerin passed away on November 18, 2022. Mary was born in Bronx, NY in 1940. She was a twin and the 4th child of her parents, William and Julia. She was the proud mother of 8 children. Despite her large family, Mary made time for everyone, providing support and love to all who knew her.
Mary attended St. Jerome Catholic School in the Bronx and spent her early life in NYC. After marrying John Sheerin in 1964, Mary raised her first 2 children in the Bronx and later moved to Englishtown, NJ. Several children and a few jobs later, Mary and her family moved to Carteret, NJ. There, Mary worked for Kinder-Morgan for 25 years, retiring to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to be close to her brothers and sister. In Myrtle Beach she volunteered for several social and women’s groups and enjoyed her job at the information booth in the Myrtle Beach Airport.
Mary enjoyed spending time with her family, attending nearly 25 consecutive years of her children’s sporting events, crafting and baking. She truly enjoyed entertaining and making guests feel like they were part of her family.
