DANVERS – Mrs. Mary A. (Ryan) (Hanley) Camire, 93, of Danvers, beloved wife of the late James D. Hanley and the late Lionel Camire, died peacefully, Friday, evening March 27, 2020 at the home of her daughter.

Born in Somerville, she was raised and educated in Malden and was a graduate of Malden Catholic School in 1945.

Mrs. Camire had been employed for many years with the Telephone company. First new England Tel and Tel to Nynex and A.T & T, Mary was a devoted office worker and secretary in the Engineering department for many years until the time of her retirement in 1992. Over the years at the telephone company her colleagues became some of her best friends. Her circle of friends from work became life long and they would often travel together and made many memories.

A loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Mary was full of life and vigor. With an outgoing and affable personality, Mary endeared her self to many. She was truly a people person and made friends where ever she went. She loved to ballroom dance, laugh, play cards, bingo and spend time at the Peabody Senior Center. She had a deep love and faith for Jesus and was a long-time devoted member of the Calvary Christian Church in Lynnfield. Her greatest joy in life was her family. She was a straight up, honest New England Yankee who gave you the straight juice and was always matter of fact.

When she became a grandmother, it was her greatest joy in life. She will be remembered for her ever present smile, her "nanaisms" and her devotion to her family and friends. She will be deeply missed.

Mary is survived by her children, Janice H. Taketa and her husband Kelvin of Honolulu, Hawaii, James N. Hanley and his companion Linda Brooks of Greenland, NH and Mary T. Dion and her husband Paul of Danvers, with whom she resided, her 13 grandchildren, her 12 great grandchildren, her step son, Robert Camire and his wife Luann of Salem, her son-in-law Brian Trainor of Salisbury and John Kearney of Milton and several nieces and nephews. She was the mother of the late Rosemary H. Kearney and Kathleen F. Trainor.

I didn't know Mary, but I work with her daughter Mary and if she was anything like Mary Dion, then I know she was a wonderful person to be around and had a lot of people who love her. She is now with her daughters Rosemary and Kathleen. Mary is also at peace and no longer in any pain. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family
