Mary E. "Bunny" Paquette

Mary "Bunny" Paquette, 77, of Brimfield, departed from this world on a serene Sunday, March 10, at UMASS Memorial Hospital. She leaves behind a legacy filled with love and kindness that will forever be cherished by those who had the privilege of knowing her.

Bunny was the beloved daughter of the late James O. and Katherine (Forest) McNamara. She is survived by her sons Jerry Maskill and wife Pamela of Jacksonville, NC and James Maskill and wife Sarah of Somers, CT, and two grandsons, Jimmy and Ben Maskill of Somers, CT.

Throughout her life, Bunny found joy in simple pleasures and devoted herself to serving others with a compassionate heart.
Bunny's warm spirit touched many lives as she dedicated years to driving a school bus in Somers, CT, and assisting elderly individuals with unwavering care. A true people person at heart, she found solace in engaging conversations and was known for her genuine interest in others. A faithful member of the Holland Church, Bunny's devotion to her community and faith was unwavering. 
Beyond her acts of service, Bunny indulged in creative pursuits such as painting, drawing, and tending to her garden; however, her greatest source of happiness came from spending time with her two cherished grandchildren, Jimmy and Benjamin.

In honor of her memory, a memorial service will be held at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 6th at Holland Church located at 11 Sturbridge Road in Holland, MA.
As we bid farewell to a remarkable soul, let us carry forward Bunny's legacy of compassion and joy. Though she may have departed this world, her spirit will forever remain alive in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
