|Sharlene Feeney Memorial Walk, Thursday, May 4
Sharlene Feeney Grealy was born and raised in South Boston. She was the daughter of Pat and Mike Feeney and sister to Michael, Donna, and Denise. Growing up in South Boston, she participated in the L Street Bath House activities, the South Boston Neighborhood House and the Boys and Girls Clubs. She did it all. She also participated in the Elder Shut-in program at St./ Brigid's Church, doing errands for and helping with other chores that the elderly she was assigned to could not do alone. She married Michael Grealy and had three beautiful children, Deirdre, Tommy and Alanna. Her first attribute was motherhood, she thrived on it and loved every minute of it. One of her other many good qualities was friendship, both young and old, near and far.
Unfortunately, Sharlene was stricken with cancer (Melanoma) which claimed her life at just 38 years old. She had a strong faith and battled her disease without complaint. She walked the beach almost everyday and had a big beautiful smile for all to see. On Thursday, May 4, which would have been Sharlenes 41st birthday, her memory lives on, with a 5 p.m. walk along her beloved South Boston beach. Donations from the walk go toward a scholarship for a student in one of the parochial schools in South Boston, as well as other charitable organizations.
Sharlene had a special way about her that warmed the hearts of everyone around her. Those who knew her were blessed.
