HAMDEN – Mary Imelda (Cashen) Finnegan, aged 76, passed away Friday, January 20, 2023 at her daughter’s home in Hamden. She was the wife of the late James Anthony Finnegan.
Mary was one of five children born September 21, 1946, in Dublin, Ireland to the late Patrick Cashen and Kathleen (Sullivan) Cashen. She came to the United States in 1989 settling in Hamden with her family. Mary loved to cook and garden. She loved to travel and to be by the ocean but her greatest joy was caring for her family.
