MARGOTTA. Mary "Molly" Mullen Margotta, 91, of Suffield, passed away Saturday, April 1, 2017 at St. Francis Hospital, Hartford. Born February 13, 1926 in Cootehill, County Caven, Ireland daughter of the late Michael and Kathleen (Dempsey) Mullen. Mary grew up in Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland, one of 15 siblings including 3 sets of twins. She was so proud of her Irish heritage. Mary decided to leave nursing school in England and set out for the United States by ship in 1950 when she was only 24 years old. She landed in New York City with her best friend where she found a job dressing the display windows for a Furrier company in downtown Manhattan and later for the AT&T Company in NYC. After living in NJ, FL and GA she eventually made her way to East Windsor. For years, she was a stay at home mom while her children were young. She later worked at Eastco tool company and JCPenny's. Mary worked hard during this time and devoted her life to raising 2 beautiful children on her own. During this time, she was also a brownie's, girl scout and cub scout leader for her children and was a member of the PTA at East Windsor School. Mary finally moved to Suffield to be closer to her loving daughter who was also her best friend. During Mary's retirement years, she worked in Customer Service at the Enfield Mall, as a Home Care Giver and was an Auxiliary Member of the Village for Family and Children in Suffield. She was also a member of the Woman's Guild at St. Phillips Church and most recently at Sacred Heart Church. For many years, she worked at the Sacred Heart Church Christmas Bazaar. Mary loved meeting new people and was adored by everyone she met. She cherished all her friendships she developed over the years. Since she had no family in the US, her many friends and neighbors in East Windsor were like family to her and were always there to support her. Her favorite things to do were to cook a big meal for those she loved, go shopping, and spend time with her beloved family and granddogs. No one had a bigger or kinder heart than Mary and she will be missed and loved forever. Mary is survived by her daughter, Maureen Rancourt and her husband David; her grandchildren, Jennifer Daddario and her husband James, Melissa Jozefiak and her husband, Jason, Jessica Margotta, Justin Margotta; her great grandchildren, Ayla, Zoe, Grayson; her siblings, Joseph Mullen, Bridie Mullen, Bruno Mullen, Winifred Petrie, Gerald Mullen, Michael Mullen, Kathleen Toland, Rose Isaae, Francie Mullen.
