Louise Mary O’Brien, 87, of Wilmington, NC passed away Thursday, September 16, 2021 at her home with her family by her side.
Louise was born in Providence, RI on August 9, 1934, the daughter of the late Nicholas Peter Damos and Mary Vieira Damos. She was a graduate of St. Patrick’s High School, Providence, RI and attended Barrington College. She was a life-long learner and world traveler.
Louise had a long and stellar career in banking, most notably many years as a new account supervisor and investment counselor with Baltimore Federal Savings & Loan (Baltimore Federal Financial) in Randallstown, MD, where she and her family lived for 33 years. Her customers loved her, and on busy days when another staff member attempted to help, customers often remarked, “That’s ok. I’ll wait for Mrs. O’Brien.”
She was a very prayerful person and devout Catholic throughout her life.
Louise is survived by her husband of 63 years, Joseph P. O’Brien; daughter Mary Louise Sullivan and husband Edward of Wrightsville Beach; son William J. O’Brien of Lexington, KY; sister Ramona Marrier of Fall River, MA; five grandchildren Patrick Sullivan, Colin Sullivan, Katherine (Kate) Mary Elizabeth Sullivan, Matthew O’Brien, and Stephen O’Brien; and many nieces and nephews.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 AM Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at St. Therese Catholic Church Wrightsville Beach. Burial service will follow the Mass at Oleander Memorial Gardens.
The family will see friends from 4:00 – 6:00 PM Monday, September 20, 2021 at Wilmington Funeral Chapel.
