Mary Lou O'Brien, 80, (Davis) passed away peacefully in her home on Monday April 10th, 2017. She was born on January 24, 1937 in Atlantic City, NJ to John H. Davis and Verna Davis. She married her sweetheart, Francis J. O'Brien Sr. on March 2nd, 1957 and together, they became longtime residents of Brigantine, NJ in 1969. 

If there was anything that made Mary Lou's eyes light up with joy, it was her family, extended family and friends. More affectionately known as Mom Mom, she spent her life nurturing the people that she loved the most and no one did it better. For all that knew her, it was the simple things in life that Mom Mom never took for granted; her husband's witty comments and charming smile, crime shows on TV, sandwiches from Wawa, creme donuts and bruschetta from Aversa's Bakery, the weather channel, stock pilling soaps and cleaning supplies and the never ending visits and phone calls from her kids and grandkids to which the snack table was never empty, laughs were never ending and hearts were always full. 

Mary Lou is preceded in death by her parents John H. Davis Sr. and Verna Davis, her husband, Francis J. O'Brien Sr. and her brother John H. Davis Jr. She is survived by her sister; Kathleen Hoover (George), her four children Patricia Fitting (Joe), Francis J. O'Brien Jr. (Elaine), Michael O'Brien (Kathy) and Thomas O'Brien (Wendy). Her eight grandchildren; Lauren (Keith), Mandi (Andrew), Rachel, Frank, Mike, Danielle (Andrew), Joe and Matt as well as her two great-grandchildren; Brooklyn and McKinley. 

Our Mom Mom was loved and cherished by each and everyone that knew her. Her beautiful life will live on in the memories that we all hold dear to our hearts. Her service will be private, but thoughts and prayers are always appreciated. To share your fondest memory of Mary Lou please visit
