Mary E. (Burns) Fitzgerald of Bridgewater (longtime Verizon employee), age 54, died peacefully in the comfort of her family on Jan. 18th after a courageous battle with cancer.
Mary grew up in Bridgewater and was a graduate of BR Class of 1983. After high school she started a long and successful career with Verizon Telephone Company. As a newbie she started off as a phone operator and after 33 years retired as a well respected technician manager in the Taunton Facility. It was during this career where she met the love of her life John K. Fitzgerald whom she shared a passion for camping and music. The two married on Jan. 28 , 2018 and shared a home in Bridgewater where friends and family often visited. Mary was happiest when she was at Ellis Haven Camp Ground in Plymouth, enjoying a beverage around a fire while listening to Tom Petty, Dave Matthews, or her ultimate fav Bob Dylan.
She was a sturdy, loving, kind, and optimistic person who despite her many ailments associated with cancer she never once complained which was a testament to her life in general.
Mary was the loving daughter of Alice M. Burns of Bridgewater and the late Joseph A. Burns, loving wife of John K. Fitzgerald of Bridgewater, devoted mother of Thomas O’Day IV of RI and “Nana” of Thomas O’Day V. Fun and loving sister of Michael A. Gardner of ME, George W. Gardner of Quincy, William B. Burns of Bridgewater, Kathleen M. Burns of Mansfield, Jennifer A. Burns of Bridgewater, and John A. Burns of Easton. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
