She was born in Hartford on July 12, 1942, daughter of the late John and Madeline (Guthrie) Martin. She was a graduate of Bulkeley High School, Class of 1960. Mary Ellen then worked at the Travelers Insurance Co. and SNET. She and John were married in May 1964. Soon after they moved to Newington and she dedicated her life to raising her children. When they were older, she joined Northeast Utilities as a Secretary until retirement. Mary Ellen loved Irish music and attending the events at the Irish American Home Society. She and John loved to travel and drove to Florida every year for ten years. She was a big Red Sox and UConn Women’s Basketball fan and also loved animals and her many pet parakeets.
