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.
