Obituary For Connie Lynn Boylan

Connie Lynn Boylan, 68 of Rockland, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home, after a year long battle with breast cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family. Connie was born in Rutherfordton, North Carolina on April 30, 1953. She grew up in Charlestown, MA, where she met the love of her life, Philip Michael. Connie was valedictorian of her high school and attended Emmanuel College.

Connie, daughter of the late Rudolph and Dorlis Gallion, is survived by Philip Boylan, her loving husband of 49 years, her three daughters, Rebecca O’Regan, son-in-law Dennis, Michelle Sargent, the late son-in-law Edward(Teddy) Sargent, Catherine Boylan, son-in-law Jimmy Connolly, and the late Elizabeth(Liz) Boylan. In addition to her children, she is survived by her 12 grandchildren, Kayleigh and Connor O’Regan, Kristina, Brianna, Cassidy, Teddy, and Brady Sargent, James Keaveney, Riley Boylan, Avery, Declan and Logan Connolly.

She is also survived by her brother, William Gallion and his wife Denise, her brother-in-law, Bernard Boylan, sister-in-law, Natalie and husband Paul MacDonald. She is also survived by many nephews, nieces and cousins.

After raising four daughters, Connie worked and devoted her time in the Rockland elementary and preschool programs as a teacher’s assistant. She will always be remembered for her infectious laugh and passion for family. You could always find Connie singing , dancing and laughing, always enjoying life. She loved creating and passing on family traditions. From throwing the perfect birthday party, dying Easter eggs, back to school shopping, apple and pumpkin picking, driving around looking at Christmas lights, making Christmas ornaments, and of course, the grandkids’ favorite tradition of opening Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve, Connie made sure that her kids passed on these family traditions to their own kids.

In retirement, Connie loved nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren at sporting events, school events and gardening. She loved her weekends with Phil at The Twin River Casinos, poking through touristy shops, and staying in bed and breakfasts in Maine and on The Cape.

Connie, Mom, Grammy-Hugs and Kisses Always. We love you to the moon and back!

Connie’s family invites friends and loved ones to celebrate her life at Magoun-Biggins Funeral home on Monday, November 22, 2021, from 4 to 7. Burial to be held privately. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

  • May your life & memories shine in our lives forever. You were the one true light for me. Our friendship through our early formative years will live on forever. Memories - our parties at church, our moms shopping, our dads listening to records, our 12 years of school. Since you were so smart & wore glasses, I always wanted to wear glasses just like you & now I wished I didn't. Lol, the fun times we shared can never be taken away. I miss you my dear friend! ♥️

  • So very sorry for your loss she was so sweet

  • So very sorry for your loss. Thinking and praying for you at this difficult time. The Shea Family Marshfield
