Maureen C. (Martin)'s Story
Maureen C. (Martin) Conrad, 87, of Peabody died peacefully in her home on Thursday, May 4, 2017 surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late George J. Conrad.
Maureen was born in East Boston on April 3, 1930, the only daughter of the late William J. and Lucy (Daley) Martin Sr., but moved to Lynn when she was approximately 5 years old. She attended St. Joseph’s Institute and was a graduate of St. Mary’s High School in Lynn, Class of 1947. She was employed as a teller at the General Electric Credit Union for four years after her graduation.
Following her marriage to her husband George, they moved to a home in Peabody where she resided for 64 years. For 20 years, while raising her family, she was “ head waitress” at Luther-Withams Caterers.
Family was the most important thing to Maureen, a value she passed on to each of her children. She loved cooking for her family, especially baking blueberry cake and brownies for her grandchildren. She enjoyed clothes shopping for all the best deals, loved the Red Sox, was an avid reader, and missed dancing which she enjoyed for many years.
In younger days, she was active in St. Ann’s Sodality and PTO at South Memorial School.
