Mary Elizabeth Larkin

Born December 30, 1949

Mary Elizabeth Larkin, 68, of Harwich, passed away on Thursday, February 8, 2018. She was the daughter of the late Dan and Mary Larkin. Mary was raised in Milton and summered with her family in Harwich. She graduated from Milton High School and attended Katherine Gibbs School in Boston and Digital University as well as Harvard University in School of Industrial Marketing Management.

She was married and divorced from Dan Locke, and had a daughter, Rebecca Anne Locke and two grandchildren, Yvelisse Rosado and Aubrielle Rose. She enjoyed having special time with her grandchildren. Mary was proud to be a part of the Larkin family; Larkins had been on the Cape since 1862 and Mary was a fifth generation Larkin.

Mary was a sales account executive with twenty years experience providing customer solutions in telecommunications and information technology. She worked for Digital Equipment Corporation, CTC Communications and Lucent Technology.

Mary moved to Cape Cod, living in Harwich and worked as a realtor and nursery manager with Gardens By The Sea. Mary enjoyed a long partnership with Rocky(George Rockwood Clark) to whom she was engaged. Mary was on the board of Family Pantry (founded by her father) and active with the Council on Aging.

Mary listened and communicated well even with Generals, who were her clients. She was witty and maintained a wonderful sense of humor and brought people out, "have Mary call me, Rocky."

In addition to her daughter and grandchildren, Mary is survived by her partner, Rocky; her brother, Dan and his wife, Kate; her sister, Gail McHugh and her daughter, Cara.

A memorial service will be held in the spring.

The family would like to thank the caring and attention of VNA Hospice; Debra Arzonico, Margo Beaudry, Suzanne Turo and Karen Mason. Donations in Mary Larkin's name may be sent to VNA Hospice of Cape Cod, 434 Route 134, South Dennis, MA 02660.
