Winifred “Betty” Elizabeth Sooley- It is with great sadness that the family of Winifred Elizabeth Sooley, of Woburn, announce her passing on Thursday, March 26, 2020, in her 78th year.
Born in Boston, she was the daughter of the late John, and the late Grace (Richards) Sooley. Winifred lived in Cambridge most of her life, and worked at the Mount Auburn Hospital as a labor and delivery nurse for 45 years. She retired in 2005.
“Betty,” as she was known to her family and friends, moved to Woburn to be near her family. She loved to travel in her spare time, and had been all over the world. She was a fantastic quilt make, along with many other sewing activities.
One of Betty’s most favorite places to visit every fall was Port Aux Basques, and Corner Brook Newfoundland, Canada with her mother Grace. Relatives would sit around the table and eat their traditional meals, laugh, and play music and games. But most of all, it was about family.
Winifred leaves behind her brother, Robert G. Sooley, and his wife Diane. She also leaves her nephew, Derek J. Sooley; her niece, Laura E Murphy and her husband John; and her two grandnieces, Juliann and Riley Murphy.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by the Graham Funeral Home, Woburn.
