Mary Beth Hurley, age 69, of Cheshire entered into rest on Friday, March 31, 2023 at her home with her loving family and dear friends by her side. She was born on October 20, 1953 in Somerville, MA, daughter of the late William O. M. Hurley and Mary Pauline (King) Hurley.
Mary Beth was a lifelong resident of Cheshire and a successful optician who loved the Cheshire community. She was an animal lover, most recently comforted by her cat, Mamie; and was recently predeceased by her adored Golden Retriever, Lady. Mary Beth was committed to her family, and devoted to her parents, caring for them as they aged. The past few years were a struggle for her personally, but she always stayed positive, a warrior with a “never give up” stance on life.
She is the beloved sister of Michael G. Hurley and his wife, Alicia of Wolcott; Timothy J. Hurley of North Berwick, ME; Noreen M. Hurley-Storace and her husband, Frank of Boston, MA; and Dorothy King of Boise, ID. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, Casey and Kerry Storace, Tabitha (Bryan) Talbot, and Nancy (Kam) and William Hurley; and will be missed by all of her many friends which she cherished, to include Linda, Kathy, Barbara, Yvonne, Chavon, Tammy and Annie.
Her family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to the staff, nurses and doctors of Gaylord for the compassionate care they provided for Mary Beth during her illness.
