WALSH, Lorraine T. (Hubbard) Of Malden, fondly known as "Bunny," passed away on Monday, December 12, 2022, surrounded by family at her daughter Teresa's home, after a three-month home hospice. Bunny was the beloved wife of the late Thomas P. Walsh, Sr. with whom she shared 56 years of marriage. She was the mother of Kathleen Murphy and her husband, Danny of Saugus, Assistant Fire Chief Thomas P. Walsh, Jr. (Ret.) and his wife, Dottie of Wakefield, Buffy Walsh of Wakefield, Maureen Shafer and her husband, Geoff of Melrose, Jacquelyn Cram and her husband, John of Malden, and Teresa Walsh of Malden.

Walsh, III (Kristen) of Wilmington, Erin Howard (Tony) of Lynnfield, Kerri Magoon (Matt) of Wakefield, Jordan Cram of Malden, and Joshua Cram of Boston (at BU).

Bunny was the daughter of the late W. Martin and Evelyn (Neagle) Hubbard; and sister of the late Robert M. Hubbard; and sister-in-law of the late Sister Janet Walsh, SSJ/Framingham.

Bunny, Ma, Auntie Bunny, Nanama was one of a kind. You always knew where you stood with her, and no matter where that was, she had your back. She was always proud of every single one of us, no matter our smallest victory. We were very lucky to have her in our lives for as long as we did. She was truly a fighter. A champion, a mother.
She’s now in Heaven with all of the loved ones that went before us. Until we meet again sweet Mama. We hope these first few days there are filled with hugs and love and laughter.

When Bunny’s 6th “baby” was in High School, she returned to work. Her first position back in the workforce was as Executive Assistant to the late Honorable Mayor Thomas H. Fallon. First with the transition team in November of 1981 and the through his two terms as mayor from January of 1982 through January of 1986. During this time, Bunny also served the city as Secretary of the Malden Licensing Board. After leaving the Mayor’s Office, Bunny Began employment with Boston University College of Engineering. She continued to work at BU for the next eleven years, retiring in 1997 as the Assistant to the Chair of the College of Engineering.

With her retirement came more time with her grandchildren, more and more trips with them to Disney, Cape Cod and New Hampshire as well as her wonderful trips with her children to Las Vegas and Ireland, cruises with her daughters, and long weekends in New Hampshire and Cape Cod.

Bunny returned to work part time after her retirement. First at Bank of America and then at St. Joseph Church in Malden. In 2011, Bunny decided to move to 630 Salem Street in Malden. In her words “ I went from my parents’ home to being married and then to raising six children. I have never lived on my own”. Bunny loved 630 Salem Street. She made many friends and became a Member of the Board of the 630 Club in 2012. She was Vice President from 2013-2016. She became President in 2107. She resigned from the board due to health issues.

Our mother, the matriarch of our family, was true and fierce. All of us agree that she was, in fact, the strongest woman we have ever known. Bunny’s love for her family exceeded anything else in her life; yet, she gave her all to anything and everything she was involved in. Bunny loved that we all have remained close; her grandchildren have remained close; and with that closeness has come eighteen great grandchildren who all know of this unconditional and unwavering love also fondly known as Bunny’s Family.

Our mother had great faith in God. She raised us with the same faith. We have no doubt that when she passed, she was in Heaven. We will see her again and may our reunion be as wonderful as the one she is having right now.
