Obituary

Mary Ann (Diem) Molaskey, 84, a former resident of Stow, MA, died peacefully Friday, July 3, 2020, lovingly surrounded by her five children. She was the beloved wife of James H. Molaskey, to whom she was married for 53 years at the time of his passing on December 24, 2014.

Born and raised in Oil City, PA, she was the daughter of the late Dr. Carl H. and Gertrude M. (Riesenman) Diem. A lifelong RN, Mary Ann graduated in 1956 from Mercy School of Nursing in Pittsburgh, PA. Upon graduating nursing school, she obtained her pilot’s license prior to beginning her nursing career at Queens Hospital in Honolulu, HI. She resided in Hawaii at the time when it became our country’s 50th state. Upon returning to Pittsburgh, she met and married the love of her life, Jim, a Bostonian who had moved to Pittsburgh for work with Canada Dry Co. The couple and their five children later resided in Framingham, MA and Windsor, CT before settling in Stow, MA in 1977.

Mary Ann loved her career as a surgical nurse at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, an ICU nurse at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Hartford, and was especially proud and honored to serve the last 35 years of her career as an Emergency Room nurse and Employee Health nurse at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA.

Mary Ann was an active member of St. Isidore Parish for over 40 years where she met many dear friends. Her purely loving and caring demeanor was endless and was felt by one and all. She loved and cherished any time spent with family and especially loved being Grandma to her seven grandchildren. She treasured family vacations in Brewster on Cape Cod and visits with her siblings and many nieces and nephews across the country. She enjoyed hosting holiday gatherings including the annual Molaskey Family pool party with “Uncle Jimmy’s” extended family. She loved the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox, was an avid Scrabble player, enjoyed playing games and doing puzzles, loved serving desserts especially ice cream, and enjoyed watching the birds outside on her feeders.

Mary Ann is survived by her five children, Cathy Feenan and her husband Scott of Groton, MA, Jim Molaskey and his wife Tracey of Groton, MA, Anne Molaskey and her husband Ron Palardy of Marlborough, MA, John Molaskey and his wife Elaine of Acton, MA, and Beth (Molaskey) Szymanski and husband Erik of Billerica, MA; 7 dear grandchildren: Scott, Matthew and Meghan Feenan, Jim and Kathleen Molaskey, and Jack and Ben Molaskey; her brother Carl "Butch" Diem of Cleveland, OH; her sister-in-law Ida Diem of Worthington, WV; and many beloved nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

In addition to her husband and parents, Mary Ann was predeceased by her brothers Dr. Charles Diem and Daniel Diem, and her sister Gretchen Wycoff.

I and my deceased wife Diane and I and our four children are ex-Juniper Hills neighbors of the Molaskeys. We knew Mary Ann and Jim and their family well having lived diagonally across the street from them for 13 years. I have a medical condition that caused me to be hospitalized a few times at Emerson Hospital. Each time I was there Mary Ann made it a point to seek me out and brighten my day with her phenominal smile and good cheer. She was special in so many way. She, Jim and their family were great neighbors and friends. May she rest in peace and enjoy her eternity with her Jim.
