God was gifted another beloved member of the
Damien Family: Mrs. Mary Patricia O’Leary.
Her daughter shared that she passed away on
Tuesday, August 4, in Chicago. 
She and her husband Bob loved their time in
and around Boston. 

 Damien High School 1983-84 to 1997-98
English Department Chair, AP English Teacher,
American Literature, Senior Ethics, Baseball Card Club Advisor. 

Many of you will remember Mrs. O’Leary at Spartan sporting events, 
especially at basketball with her high-pitched voice, “Mr. Referee!” 
She also enjoyed Spartan football and baseball. 

As a teacher, she was very well known for her love of poetry and literature. 
A few of her students went on to earn English PhDs. 

And many colleagues will remember she was never hesitant in correcting 
a person’s grammar even Fr. Pat and Fr. Cronin. 

We ask that you keep her family, friends and colleagues in your prayers.
