Marie Spear Obituary

Marie Bridget (Fitzpatrick) Spear of Belmont died Friday, January 12, 2024, surrounded by family. She was eighty-two.  Born in Dorchester on July 24, 1941, she was the daughter of the late Fenton and Maria (Clancy) Fitzpatrick.  She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and aunt who gave freely of her time to others. She truly took pleasure in all of the little things in life. She enjoyed playing bingo and grabbing a bite to eat at the local diner with her sister Josephine (Pat), warm afternoons sitting on a bench watching the boats at Castle Island, driving up to Maine to visit Nubble Light, shopping for plants and flowers for her yard at garden shops, cuddling on the couch with her dog, Jak; and most of all, spending time with family. She was the epitome of a doting mother and her children, Chris and Caroline, were incredibly blessed to have her. Her greatest joy was her granddaughter Bridget. She had a warm and bubbly personality and infectious smile. Peg, as she was affectionately called by her family, had so many wonderful qualities. However, one of her best qualities was that she always made you feel loved and right at home.

Beloved wife of Peter Spear for 52 years. Also survived by son Christopher Spear fiance Rachael Greeley and her children Aidan and Jacob of Lincolnville, Maine; daughter Caroline Curry and granddaughter Bridget of Belmont; her sisters Elizabeth Mulford brother-in-law George of Stoughton and Josephine Holubiak brother-in-law Thomas of Waltham; her brothers Boyce Fitzpatrick of Alexandria, Virginia and Robert Fitzpatrick of Orlando, Florida; her sister-in-law Mary Fitzpatrick of Falmouth; and many nieces and nephews. She is pre-deceased by her brothers Joseph Fitzpatrick and Francis (Frank) Fitzpatrick; sisters-in-law Ann Fitzpatrick, Karen Fitzpatrick, and Genevieve Fitzpatrick; and brother-in-law Samuel Spear.
