Obituary of Mary C. Mullarkey

Mary C. Mullarkey, December 12, 1940, 80 years old, of Bronx, NY, passed away on April 11, 2021 after a valiant fight with COPD. She was pre- deceased by her husband Richard P. Mullarkey, her parents, John Burke and Mary McCormack and her sister Ann Cassidy. She is survived by her sister Alice Burke, her six children Richie (Barbara) Mullarkey, James Mullarkey, Suzanne Shannon (Chris), Christine Duffy (Mike), Denise Condon (Tim), and Thomas Mullarkey (Erin). Her 17 Grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Mary married the love of her life, Richie, on April 8th 1960. Together they raised their 6 kids, who are all a testament to her dedication to and love for her family. Over the years her little family of 6 children has grown to include her 17 Grandchildren who she loved beyond measure. Mary loved New York City, and especially her trips to Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. She loved to sit on the beach and count her children’s heads in the ocean to ensure no one went missing. She poured her heart into Christmas mornings and spent all holidays in the kitchen cooking up a meal fit for kings. She loved to feed her family and did it every year up until her last Christmas. Her fun story telling and her sense of humor kept us all laughing until her very last days. She was a daughter, a sister, a friend to many, a grandmother, but most of all she was a Mom. Her absence will be painfully noticeable every day. We miss her so deeply. With everyone’s health and NY regulations in mind, the number of visitors must be monitored.
