Dr. Hugh, Ruth and John Mahoney Tribute Evening

Please join us for an evening to remember and honor Dr. Hugh, Ruth and John Mahoney.

On New Year’s Eve 1975 life was forever changed for the Mahoney family, as well as all Tewksbury residents. Dr. Hugh Mahoney and his wife Ruth were well-liked members of the community. Dr. Mahoney was an obstetrician who delivered hundreds of babies, and Ruth was a nurse. While their daughters were out celebrating New Year’s Eve, Dr. Mahoney, Ruth, and their son John were murdered in their Tewksbury home. Family and friends found themselves helpless, disempowered, and bewildered as this tragic event changed the community in many ways.

Daughter Maureen Mahoney has brought together a group of local friends and supporters to establish the Dr. Hugh, Ruth, and John Mahoney Tribute Committee. The committee will host an event on October 21, 2015, at 6:30 p.m. at the Tewksbury Country Club to honor Maureen’s family’s memory and to address the issue of domestic violence. Through a component fund of the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, proceeds from the event will support community domestic violence initiatives. Ed Davis, former Superintendent of the Lowell Police Department, former Commissioner of the Boston Police Department, and current safety consultant for Uber, will be the keynote speaker.

In coordinating this event, Maureen Mahoney has been sincerely moved by the outpouring of support, friendship and love from our communities. Maureen’s resolve is to find solutions to violence. The proceeds from this event will assist local non-profits that address domestic violence.

Thank you in advance for being part of the solution.
