Mary L. Hinshaw
Mary Louise (Pasquale) Hinshaw, 72, passed away July 2, 2020 after a heroic battle with illness. Born, November 27, 1947, in Charleroi, PA, she was the daughter of the late Louis and Gloria Josephine (Bondi) Pasquale. Prior to moving to Agawam, Mary lived in Longmeadow most of her years raising her three children. Mary worked for the law offices of Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley for 32 years, which remained a large part of her life. She cherished her many friendships working as a Legal Assistant, predominantly for Attys Donald W. Blakesley and his son Daniel E. Blakesley. Mary enjoyed reading, cooking, shopping, and spending time with friends and family. She was known for her laughter, love of music and her smile. Mary traveled often and most recently visited Italy, a lifelong dream. Mary especially loved her many trips to Pennsylvania to visit her cousins Carol and Kathy, and to Florida to visit her sister Kathie. Mary’s interests were varied, but by far her favorite pastime was spoiling her five cherished and beautiful grandchildren; they were the light of her life. Mary was frequently spotted on the sidelines at sporting and dance events happily cheering on her grandkids. Mary is survived by her children, Heather Hinshaw-Blews, husband Kenneth and grandson Cameron Blews of Macungie, PA; Matthew, wife Sarah and granddaughters Haley & MaryBeth of Agawam; and Christian, wife Maureen and grandsons Edward & Liam of Longmeadow. She also leaves her brothers Timothy Caldwell and Louis Pasquale, Jr. of Pennsylvania; her sister Kathleen Weed, husband Bob of Florida; her cousins Carol Plesko and Kathy Belan, husband Neil of Pennsylvania; her former husband Larry Hinshaw of North Carolina, as well as several nieces, nephews and dear friends. A celebration of Mary's life will be held at a later date. Please visit www.TazziniFuneralHome.com for condolences.
