Obituary for Mary Joanne Stronach (Maria)

Mary Joanne  Stronach (Maria)
Mary Joanne (Maria) Stronach, 82, of Hudson and former longtime resident of Stow, died peacefully Friday, February 9, 2018 at her residence surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of 41 years to the late James Norman Stronach, Sr. She leaves her loving children, Diane Stronach of Hudson, MA; Patricia Clair and husband Daniel of Columbia, SC; Mary Ellen Williams and husband Thomas of Easton, MA; and James Stronach, Jr. and wife Shea of Trussville, AL. She also leaves her adoring grandchildren, Brittany Cowgill of Portland, ME; Andrew Clair of New York, NY; Cullen Clair of Charlotte, NC; Mary Clair of Orlando, FL; Emily Williams of East Boston, MA; Hannah Williams of Easton, MA; Bailey Stronach of Trussville, AL; her great grandchildren James and Mary Cowgill of Portland, ME; two sisters, Frances (Gina) Cacciatore and Geraldine (Georgie) Whitney, both of Stow, MA along with many nieces and nephews. She was the sister of the late Antonio (Tony) Maria and Caroline Borelli.

Mary was born and raised in Maynard, daughter of the late James and Adeline (Carruba) Maria. She resided in Stow for 40 plus years until most recently moving to Hudson. She cherished being at home raising her children and welcoming all into her home. She loved preparing Italian dishes for all to enjoy and baking Italian cookies to share with family and friends. In her spare time, Mary looked forward to watching the daily mass on the Catholic Television Network, watching “her stories” on television and daily phone calls. Her passion in life was spending time with her family, especially later with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was an inspiration to all who loved and knew her. Her warm heart and giving spirit will be cherished forever.
