Mrs. Finn was raised in Southborough and graduated from Peters High School. She had been employed as an administrative assistant for the Housing Authority for the City of Marlborough, retiring in 1999.
She donated her time to the reading program at the Marlborough Public Schools, loved music, singing, and writing poetry. She spent many happy summers at Cape Cod, and followed the Red Sox and professional golf. Her greatest joy came from her family, with whom she traveled extensively, and in supporting her grandchildren in their many activities.
She is survived by her son, William “Sandy” Finn of Danbury, Conn.; her daughters, Kathleen Gorski and her husband Donald of Darien, Conn. and Kerri Carney and her husband Paul of Hudson; her brother, Richard McAuliffe of Fort Pierce, Fla.; her grandchildren, Matthew Gorski, Sarah Gorski, Kaleigh Finn, Molly Finn, Emily Finn, Meagan Carney, Lauren Carney, and William Carney; and several nieces and nephews. She was also the sister of the late Thomas McAuliffe.
