MBA mourns passing of longtime staff member

Issue December 2015

It is with a heavy heart that we report that longtime Massachusetts Bar Association employee Linda Maher died in November after a two-year battle with breast cancer. Linda worked at the MBA for 18 years in a number of roles, most notably at the front desk in the Boston office, where she frequently welcomed visitors during the late afternoon and early evenings.

"Linda was quite an exceptional person who was truly fearless in her battle. While we are saddened by the loss of such a loyal member of our MBA family, we are grateful for the time spent with her for so many years," said Martin W. Healy, the MBA's chief legal counsel and chief operating officer. "She will be greatly missed by all of us who worked with her, and no doubt also by the hundreds if not thousands of MBA members who saw Linda as the helpful face of the MBA."

Services were held in her hometown of Norwood in mid November. Linda's obituary can be found on
