Mary Rachel (Naclerio) Barron, endearingly known as Maisie, of Marion, MA, formerly of Quincy, Braintree and Harlow’s Landing, died peacefully surrounded by the love of family, December 22, 2018. She was the cherished wife of the late James B. Barron, with whom she shared fifty three years of marriage. Daughter of late Ralph and Annie (Robertson) Naclerio, and loving sister of late Ralph Naclerio, Lawrence Naclerio, and Virginia Parrish. Maisie’s devotion to her children, Kelly and her husband, Tim Kelleher, of Marion, James and his wife Ana Maria of Jamaica Plain, Michael and his wife Colleen of Braintree, Rachel and her husband Stephen Lynch of Marion, Stephen and his wife Merike of Marion, and Aimée and her husband Dennis Driscoll, of Milton, and grandchildren, Aimée, Timothy, Brendan, Julia, Chloë, Madelyn, Matthew, Emily, Owen, William, Patrick, Isabelle and Sophie, many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and cherished friends, is her enduring gift. She will be dearly missed.
A Registered Nurse, Maisie specialized in obstetrics and pediatrics, retiring as nursery supervisor, after forty years of dedicated service at Quincy City Hospital. She was beloved by her colleagues and the patients for whom she cared. Beautiful Maisie was the consummate mother and grandmother; she doted on her family- caring, guiding, encouraging, supporting and cheering for them quietly, from the sidelines. She enjoyed life, gathering family and friends around her kitchen table, the loving preparation of multi-cultural recipes, decorating her home for the holidays, gardening, dancing, bird watching with grandchildren, egg decoupage, travel, quiet walks on the beach, coffee with the Hail Mary circle, and Tuesday Night Dinners with friends at Piney Point. Maisie’s generosity of spirit was powerfully felt by the people she touched. Her genius for friendship and her incandescent smile illuminated the journey of her well-lived life, and her family is grateful to the many friends and care-givers who shared her journey. Maisie was the proud recipient of the Diocese of Fall River Marian Medal, for contributions to her beloved parish, Saint Rita’s Church, Marion.
