Mary C. (Burke) Johnson, age 59, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 28, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Brighton on September 21, 1959, she was the daughter of John J. Burke (late) and Mary (O’Brien) Burke. She was raised in Westwood and graduated from Westwood High School with the Class of 1977. Mary continued her education at Southeastern Massachusetts University completing her bachelor’s degree in 1982.
While working for a real estate management firm she met her future husband, Dave, and they married August 28, 1982. She and Dave lived in Medfield after the wedding but moved to Walpole in 1984, before starting a family in 1988 and later having triplets in 1990. Mary was a partner at Cornerstone Corporation where she worked for 30 years up until her passing. She took pride in being a business owner, loved her job and considered the people she worked with as part of her family.
Mary loved nothing more than spending quality time with her family and hosting get togethers, especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. She was a long time General Hospital fan, recording daily shows during the week and binge watching on weekends. Most of all, she was an exceptional shopper and decorator, not just for herself but for her family and friends.
Beloved wife of Warren “Dave” Johnson.
