Marie T. Walsh, 89, of Windsor, beloved wife of the late John R. Walsh, peacefully passed away on March 30, 2017. Marie was born in Norwich, CT on May 6, 1927, daughter of the late William and Florida (Marsan) Quinn, and spent the majority of her life residing in Windsor. She was a graduate of Norwich Free Academy and attended Annhurst College, in South Woodstock, CT. This led to a short career in the banking industry before she met her soulmate, Jack, on a beach in Rhode Island. Marie and Jack were married for 63 years and raised seven children. She was loving and completely devoted to her family. Marie always had a book in her hand, a crossword puzzle on the kitchen table and a knitting project in a bag near the living room sofa. Her homemade chocolate chip cookies were her calling card, never visiting without handing out a bag of them. She was the only person in the family who could carry a tune. Marie's grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she cherished every moment with them. She enjoyed simple pleasures with her family – a good laugh, watching birds from her window, coloring, and sitting outside in the sun. Always missing Jack after he went to be with the Lord, she is reunited with him at last. Her memory is forever cherished by four sons, John W. Walsh and his wife Dawnmarie Finocchi of Hingham, MA, Michael P. Walsh and his wife Ellen of Wethersfield, Patrick B. Walsh of Windsor, Brendan Walsh and his wife Rosita of Wethersfield; three daughters, Maureen Pollard and Dan Mulryan of Glastonbury, Eileen Hunkeler and her husband Ted of East Hartford, Kathleen Hutchison and her husband David of Farmington; eighteen grandchildren, Brendan and his wife Jennifer, Kelsey and her husband Ryan, Marty, Seana, John and his wife Janice, David, Sheila, Kevin, Greg, Jillian, Katherine, Allison, Michael, Kelly and her fiancé Matthew, Brittany, Joli, Bella and her husband Adrian, Reneé and a great-grandson, Lael. She also leaves her sister, Patricia Tedeschi of Norwich; and Pat's children, Judith and David Tedeschi. She leaves a special niece, Sheila Lamenzo of Windsor, and her special friend, Cyril Hutchison. In addition to her husband John, Marie was predeceased by her brother John J. Quinn. Marie's family will receive friends on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 9-10:45 a.m. at Carmon Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Ave., Windsor with a funeral service immediately following at 11 a.m. in the chapel of Carmon Funeral Home.
