Industry Mourns Monahan Marine Founder Nancy Monahan

Publish date:

Nancy Monahan, founder of Weymouth, Mass.-based Monahan Marine, died in her sleep May 26. She was 89.

Monahan married her husband Daniel in 1951, and they settled with their children in Weymouth in 1961, according to Monahan’s obituary.

She started Monahan’s Marine soon after moving to Weymouth, and the shop “quickly became a staple in the Weymouth community due to her fair and honest business demeanor,” according to her obituary.

Monahan owned and operated the store for more than half a century.

She was an avid angler who loved being with her family, particularly during weekend trips to Cape Cod, Mass.

“The Massachusetts Marine Trades Association was very sorry to hear that Nancy Monahan passed away last week,” said MMTA in an email to members. “We would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to her family and to the entire Monahan's Marine team.”
