Mary T. (Pisari) Moran, 98, longtime resident of Chelmsford, died in Boston on Friday, May 16. She was the beloved wife of the late Francis J. Moran. 

Born in the North End of Boston in 1916, she was the daughter of the late Mario and Marietta (Baudanza) Pisari. Mary grew up in Somerville and worked for many years at Schrafft’s and Sears, Roebuck. Her marriage to Frank gave her a new job as farmer’s wife, and together they worked to make their egg farm a success.

Mary had been a member of Chelmsford Emblem Club. 

Although she had no children of her own, she doted on her many nieces and nephews and their offspring, and met every birthday or other occasion with generosity. However, Mary spoke her mind and there was never any doubt of where you stood with her.

In addition to her late husband, Mary was preceded in death by her 5 siblings, Marion Russo, Ann Minotti, Joseph Pisari, Josephine Conrod, and Michael Pisari. She is survived by her sister-in-law Rose Pisari, and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held at the BLAKE FUNERAL HOME, 24 Worthen Street, CHELMSFORD on Wednesday from 5 until 8 p.m. Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary Church, 25 North Rd, on Thursday at 11 a.m. Interment in Pine Ridge Cemetery in Chelmsford. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in her name to Rogerson House Activity Fund, 434 Jamaicaway, Boston, MA 02130.
