Jeanne C. (Conway) Tansey

March 28, 1929 ~ August 12, 2020 (age 91)


Jeanne C. (Conway) Tansey, age 91, of Scituate, formerly of Mission Hill, Roxbury, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on August 12, 2020. Beloved wife of the late Bernard E. Tansey. Loving mother of Paul G. Tansey of Cohasset, Judy E. Carroll and her husband Richard Carroll of Scituate, Colette M. Tansey and Lisa Vaillancourt of Scituate, and the late John B. Tansey and his surviving spouse, Anne Tansey of Asheville, NC.

Sister of the late Bob, Buddy, and Claire Conway. 


Jeanne was raised in her beloved Mission Hill, where she met and married her childhood sweetheart, Bernie. Together, they moved to Strawberry Lane in Scituate and created a loving and nurturing home to raise their four children. 


Jeanne will be remembered for her kind heart, devotion to family, and her fun-loving spirit that always brought a smile to those around her. Nana’s greatest joys were the happy times she spent enjoying holidays, game nights, Sunday dinners, family celebrations, and appetizers around the “lazy Susan” with her family, who loved her dearly. Her values and loving spirit will live on through her family for years to come.

A private Mass will be held at St. Mary of the Nativity in Scituate on Saturday, Aug. 22, 2020 at 10 am. Interment following the Mass at Cudworth Cemetery in Scituate. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date when all can gather to celebrate Jeanne’s life.
