June 22, 1933 - January 6, 2021
Mariam “Mame” P. Delaney (Racine), 87, passed away after a long illness on January 6, 2021. Mame was born on June 22, 1933 in Orleans, VT to the late Paul & Achsah (Smith) Racine. She attended the local schools and graduated from Orleans High School, class of 50. Upon graduation, she moved to Boston, MA where she met her husband of 61 years, Jack Delaney of Quincy. She and Jack raised their family in Danvers, MA, and later moved to Topsfield, MA, where she attended Maple Street Congregational Church, and was currently a member of the First Congregational Church of Rowley. She worked for many years in the restaurant industry, including Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead where she worked for approximately 30 years. She also gave much of her time volunteering for many different organizations. She is survived by her brother Paul and sister-in-law Betty Racine, by her sons Timothy & wife Janet Delaney, Christopher & wife Shirley Delaney, Jeffrey & wife Martha Delaney, niece Janna Noyes & Harry Noyes, by grandchildren Lindsay & husband Jaunel Weekes, John & wife Kristen Delaney, Erin Delaney, Danielle & husband Mike Marino, and Matthew & wife Shannon Bowman, by great-grandchildren Tripp, Bella, August, Sam, Grace, Robbie, Madison, Sadie, and Mackenzie, by several nieces and nephews, and many dear friends. Being amongst friends and family is what she appreciated most in life. She is predeceased by her husband Jack, sister Rebecca Smith, brother Tom Racine, and great-grandson Quinlan Weekes. To say she will be missed is an understatement but to know how lucky we all are to have had her as a grandmother, great-grandmother, mom, aunt, sister or friend makes saying goodbye a little easier. A memorial service will be planned for later in the year when all of her loved ones can be together. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the First Congregational Church of Rowley – Mission Committee, PO Box 364, Rowley, MA 01969.
