Corinne A (Squires) Mahoney of Florida, formerly of Waltham and Arlington, passed away on April 28 aged 80, surrounded by her loving family. Corinne was the beloved wife of the late Frank Mahoney for 47 wonderful years. He was her first love, always. Corinne and Frank had a vibrant life together. They enjoyed traveling and had a beautiful trip to Hawaii that will remain a cherished memory for their family. In their retirement, Corinne and Frank moved to The Villages, spending time playing golf or pickle ball, attending concerts, and trips to the town square. Their family takes comfort that they are together again and that they’ve left behind a legacy of love and family.
Corinne was raised in Arlington with her brother Jack by their parents Margaret and John Squires. A graduate of Arlington High School, Corinne married Frank Mahoney in 1961 and raised her family in Waltham. They were surrounded by the extended family of neighbors and friends who are still part of the Mahoney family to this day. After raising both her children, who she loves unconditionally, Corinne became Nana to her seven grandchildren. They all brought her so much joy, and she loved attending their hockey and soccer games, dance recitals, and watching them graduate from military boot camp. She was so proud of her family.
When Corinne and Frank moved to The Villages, they remained faithful New Englanders at heart. Corinne loved the Boston Red Sox and Tom Brady, and kept her New England sports teams represented on her golf cart. Corinne loved being part of a community, and was a member of many clubs throughout her years. She loved to play dominoes and cards, meet for lunch, and go to shows. She will be remembered for her kindness, faith in God, fast driving, and love of a good rum cake and a deal on QVC.

Famly Rememberance by Caren D'Ambrosio
I’m Caren, Corinne’s daughter. I want to take a moment today to talk about my mom - the woman she was, the life she lived, and the legacy she leaves behind. My mom was raised in Arlington with her brother, my Uncle Jack, who she loved so much and who was very dear to our entire family. Their parents were very important figures and remained that way throughout their lives. Corinne was a baton twirler and passed her love of it down to me when I was a girl. She always said she couldn’t wait to be a mom. Corinne met the love of her life, my dad, and they were married on September 9, 1961. She had my older brother Frank and I in the next few years and moved our family to Waltham. We were raised on Ellery Road by two hardworking parents who gave us so much love and taught us many lessons. I’ll never forget when we were driving home from work in my mom’s Volkswagen, and she taught me how to drive standard. My best friend Frances and I still laugh about the horror on my mom’s face as I tried to switch between gears and get the car going. Corinne was an adoring Nana to all seven of her grandchildren. She loved them more! My mother was a woman of faith. She believed in God and life after death. She often wondered about (and asked her grandchildren) if they knew what they would say at the gates of Heaven. She said when her day arrived that she would say she was a good person who loved her family and always tried to do the right thing. All she wanted was for her family to be happy. She made sure to tell those around her what they meant to her and it’s the way we should all strive to be. I’m so grateful for the time and relationship I had with my mother. It made me the person I am today and I will miss her each and every day. But I know she is with me and all of us, and as a woman who loved to floor it in the car, she’d be hoping we keep our foot on the gas. To quote the Bible, “I fought the good fight, I finished the race, and I kept the faith” my mom sure did. Love you Mom, give Dad that hug from us and remember to let us know whenever you’re around, by being my butterfly and blowing in Franny’s ear. Love you mom, thank
