Margaret A. Bryant
Bryant, Margaret Ann (Hurley) of Pembroke, passed away on November 16, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Margaret was born, raised and educated in Brookline and Roxbury, attending St. John’s Parochial School and graduating from Brookline High School. She and her loving husband Richard married in 1969. They settled in Weymouth Proper where they raised their family. They later enjoyed living in New York, North Carolina, Georgia and Hawaii.
Margaret worked in the past for various companies including General Dynamics, State Street Bank and the Medical Information Bureau. She enjoyed teaching CCD and was a passionate human rights activist, along with assisting in various political campaigns and donating her time to charitable organizations. Among her fondest memories were spending summers with family at the family home on Cape Cod and later the family lake house in Ossipee, NH. She later wrote about these wonderful memories in her “Ode to Ossipee.”
She was an avid Boston sports fan, most especially following the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox, often with her youngest son Rick. She always loved spending time with her family and adored her grandchildren and the happy times she spent with them. Margaret will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her, especially for what her family lovingly calls “nana-ism’s”, which were unique words and sayings that were greatly specific to Margaret. Margaret had a special way of making family, friends and even strangers feel special and listened to.
Beloved wife of the late Richard J. Bryant. Daughter of the late Edward Michael and Odile (Burns) Hurley. Loving mother to Kimberly Anne Reed and her husband William of Pembroke, Jeffrey Charles Bryant of Austin, TX and Richard Daniel Bryant of Holbrook. Sister of Gerald Hurley of Dorchester, Helen Veneto and her husband, Peter, of Chechessee, SC, and the late Edward, Paul, and Charlie Hurley. Beloved and cherished Nana to Michael, Tyler, Camen, Noah, Ethan, and Emma. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Funeral services and burial will be a private celebration at Saint Joseph Cemetery, West Roxbury, MA.
