Obituary for Monica (Faherty) Roche

ROCHE, MONICA (Faherty), age 74, passed away after a long battle with CNS Lymphoma, peacefully at home in Norwood, Massachusetts on Sunday, February 10th, 2019 surrounded by her loving family and friends. Born in Lettermore, County Galway, Ireland on August 2nd 1944, she was the daughter of the late Patrick and Sarah Faherty and sister to Maureen Geohegan, Paraic Faherty, the late Tom Faherty, the late Joe Faherty and the late John Faherty. In 1969 she married Sean Roche; together they had four children – Sean, Patrick, Colleen and Maureen. She is survived by 15 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews in Ireland & England. From the onset of cancer in 2012, she would not have been with us to this day if it had not been for her loving husband Sean who was by her side throughout every step of this battle providing the much needed support and courage to keep going. She had the support and prayers of many, and throughout she always met her visitors with her beautiful smile.
