Maureen was born in County Galway, Ireland, to the late John and Mary K. (O’Toole) Mullins. Raised and educated there, she immigrated to the United States and became a citizen in 1968, settling in Dorchester.

She had lived in Weymouth for over twenty years, previously in Hull.

Maureen was employed as a dedicated healthcare worker for many years.

She enjoyed participating in activities at the Whipple Senior Center and in her earlier years enjoyed spending time at Nantasket Beach. She also loved Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and a good pastry.

Maureen was known for her kind and gentle nature. She was a trusted source of encouragement and advice. Family, friends, and neighbors will miss her big smile, Irish brogue, and most of all, her quick wit and sense of humor.

Most of all, she was devoted to her family, especially to her four daughters and cherished grandchildren, actively supporting their many activities and accomplishments.

Beloved wife for fifty years of the late William F. Whalen, Boston Police Department, Retired.

Devoted mother of Patricia M. Whalen of East Weymouth, Martina C. Whalen and her companion Joseph Sciaraffa, Jr. of North Weymouth, Maureen T. Prestia and her husband Joseph of Hingham, and Kelley Anne Froehlich of Hingham.

She was predeceased by her sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Martina C. Burlos, and Marie P. Callahan and her husband Paul. Maureen is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and their families.

At the request of the family, Maureen’s funeral services and interment will take place privately.

For those who wish, donations in Maureen’s memory may be made to the American Lung Association of MA, 1661 Worcester Road, Suite 301, Framingham, MA 01701.

  • To the extended family of Mrs. Whalen, I am so sorry to hear of her passing…I will miss talking with her trying to understand each word thru her enjoyable thick Irish brogue. Mrs. Whalen was very much like our Nana in the sense that everyone liked her and gravitated towards her. One of my favorite memories is when we picked her up at the airport and while that was a surprise for her we further took her out to dinner. When dinner was done she let out a loud content sigh and stated she felt like a Queen…what more could we ask for.
    I hope you too will take comfort in the memories you have and those that will be shared during the coming days. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Erin Godfrey and Family
