Obituary of Mary H. Shevlin

Please share a memory of Mary to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

On Saturday, January 7, 2023, Mary H. Shevlin, 70, a beloved wife, sister, and mother, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family.


Mary was born in Indianapolis, IN and raised in Greenwich, CT. Predeceased by her parents Peter and Helen Hearden. She wed the love of her life, Michael, in 1984, going on to have two beautiful children, Luke and Molly.


Mary excelled at motherhood and was the matriarch and rock of her family, through and through. She was an excellent listener, and always knew the right thing to say. She also never missed a special family occasion or her children’s sporting events. She was the biggest cheerleader and unwavering support system to those who loved her. Mary loved spending time with her family and friends. She also loved to listen to music, dance, play board games and watch a good TV binge with her family. She was a two-time breast cancer survivor and a fighter until the end.


She is survived by her loving husband Michael Shevlin of 38 years, son Luke, daughter Molly, sister and brother-in-law Georgiana and Wayne Elias, brother Bob Hearden, brother and sister-in-law Michael and Mary Francis Hearden, and a grand dog Teagan.
