Natalie Jean's Story
Natalie Jean O’Malley of Byfield, passed away peacefully on December 16, 2016.
Jean had many beautiful and loving traits, but none surpassed her ability to give to others, which made her a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
Jean was born on January 24, 1948, the second of three children, to Harry and Natalie Judd of Glen View, Ill. and is survived by her husband, Terence “Terry” O’Malley; her three sons, Sean O’Malley, Ryan O’Malley, and Terence “Luke” O’Malley, as well as Sean’s wife, Mary Madigan and their two children. She will also be missed by her very best friend and loyal furry companion, Buddy, for many dog years to come.
Jean will be remembered as a selfless and caring woman. The kind of person who couldn’t even imagine worrying about herself if someone else in the world needed worrying about first. Her loves included books, more books, fine woodworking, the pursuit of spiritual enlightenment, and her grandchildren.
She was a great participant in life, and in her community. She was involved in countless food drives, charity organizations, and non-profits. Her love of community and books lead her to work at many libraries over the last 15 years, most recently the Newburyport library.
Calling hours will be at Elliott, Woodworth & Rogers Family Funeral Home, 35 Green Street Newburyport, on Tuesday, December 20th, between 4 and 7 p.m., followed by a reception. Per Jean’s wishes, in lieu of flowers please make donations to Doctors Without Borders.
