Birth: 18 Oct 1917 Taunton, Mass.
Death: 29 Nov 2012 Burlington, Vt.
BURLINGTON - Mary Elizabeth Cirino, born Oct. 28, 1917, passed away on Thursday,
Nov. 29, 2012, in Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, after an extended illness.
Mary will be remembered for her pioneering spirit. As a young woman, she chose to
pursue a career in science at a time when most women stayed at home.
She received her doctorate in Marine Biology and conducted most of her research at
Woodshole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. She was Professor Emeritus at
Bridgewater State College, Massachusetts, and was known for her passion in fostering
a love of science, the ocean, and the outdoors in both her students and young people
in general. Stories of her adventures will entertain family and friends for generations,
and she will be sorely missed by all her knew her.
Mary is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, MaryBeth and Tony Pinard-Brace of
Shelburne; grandchildren, Alanna Pinard-Brace of Shelburne, and Ariana and Jeff
Drown of Middlebury; great-grandchildren, Alexis and Piper Drown of Middlebury;
brothers, Robert and Frank Fahey of Arlington, Mass.; and many nieces, nephews,
cousins, and friends.
Visiting hours will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ready
Funeral Home South Chapel, 261 Shelburne Road, Burlington.
A private family funeral service will be held at a later date. To send online
