Wilmington - Marie Cullen Feely, age 85, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Thomas J. Feely, her sister Margaret Dougherty, her sons Thomas (Eileen) and Dennis (Susan), her daughters Maureen Bowser (William) and Mariann Jennings (Robert), 14 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her mother Mary, her father Patrick, her sister Dorothy Looney and her brothers Joseph, Pete, and Thomas Cullen.

Marie’s true passion was her family. Known to all as “Mom-Mom,” she treasured the frequent family gatherings at her always immaculate home and the yearly summer vacations in Wildwood and Sea Isle City. She was the guest of honor at every school event, sporting event, and dance recital of her children and grandchildren. Even in her last days, she was sought out for the advice and comfort that only she could provide.

A devout Catholic, Marie was a long-time parishioner of St. Mary Magdalen Church. Her faith provided her strength in life and in death.

Born and raised in Wilmington, Marie enjoyed Irish music and culture, and St. Joseph’s basketball (“The Hawk Will Never Die!”).

A viewing will be held at the McCrery and Harra Funeral Home, 3924 Concord Pike, Wilmington on Monday March 19, from 9-10:30 am, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary Magdalen Church, 7 Sharpley Rd., Wilmington, DE 19803 at 11:00 am. Burial will be at All Saints Cemetery.

Marie’s family would like to thank the St. Mary Magdalen Church community and the staff of Compassionate Care Hospice for the care and support they provided in her final days.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages contributions to Compassionate Care Hospice, 405 E Marsh Lane, Suite 4, Newport, DE 19804 or St. Mary Magdalen.
