Obituary: Marie Tobin

We are sad to report Marie Tobin's death. She was feisty, she was funny, and she was a true blue friend. Best of all, she was bluntly outspoken. You always knew where you stood with Marie. We will miss her. Her obituary follows:

Marie “DiDi” [Smolinsky] Tobin, a longtime Hull resident, died after a long illness on Saturday, Feb. 27, at Harbor House, Hingham. She was 88.
Mrs. Tobin enjoyed traveling and was an avid Hull Pirates football fan. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren play football, soccer, and basketball. She also rooted for the Patriots and Celtics. 
Mrs. Tobin leaves her husband, James Tobin; her children, Kerri Tirrell, Marie Lambert, Gerard Tirrell, and Scott Tirell; grandchildren Brianna Duhaime, Connor Duhaime, and Nichole Burke and her husband, Joe; great grandchildren Jacob and Alyssa Burke; four stepchildren, James, Lorraine, Michael, and Susan; and many extended family members. 
Mrs. Tobin was cremated, per her wishes. Her funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 5, at St. Ann’s Church.
