When you think about Beverly. Montessori, St John Fisher, West Beverly Civic Association and ALS; you think of Meg Rooney. These are just a few organizations she supported. I am quite certain there were many more. In fact when we were raising funds at Misericordia who was first in line to help; of course it was Meg. Even in the last few weeks in her life Meg contributed to the virtual candy days for Misericordia.
Our condolences to her three fine men and her boys and numerous friends and family. We were all truly blessed to have known Meg.

I only met Meg a handful of times, but feel that I knew her through my mom - Betty Collins. She was an amazing person! May you find peace in knowing that she is reunited with her loving husband now.

Meg loved deeply, encouraged with heart, laughed sincerely, and lived fully. She gave of herself with a care-taking nature, true friendship, wonderful humor, and genuine love. Meg was a member of our Circle of seven friends. We have celebrated our dear and treasured friendship for over 40 years. With Meg's passing, our Circle now has a gap, a missing piece of our Circle arc. Although heartbroken, we will continue to honor Meg and her amazing, profound impact on each of us. Gratefully, Meg is at peace, pain free, and reunited with John. But we immensely miss, and will continue to miss, her presence and spirit.
