Margaret Louise Delaney of West Hartford, CT died at home on October 21, 2020. She lived most of her life in West Hartford where she raised her family with her beloved husband Jack who predeceased her in 1999.

Born and raised in Hartford, Louise was the daughter of William and Della Logan. She graduated from Mount St. Joseph Academy and St. Joseph College. After college, she taught grade school at Mary Hooker Elementary School in Hartford and then briefly taught school in San Francisco before returning to Hartford, where she met Jack and enjoyed 40 years of marriage.

Nothing gave Louise more pleasure than spending time with family, especially her grandchildren, who she loved and cherished deeply. Louise was deeply faithful and her faith served as a bedrock of strength during the course of her life. She loved to travel, first with her husband Jack and then with her devoted daughter Leigh who provided so much loving support to Louise over the years. Reading, movies, Irish history and simply reminiscing were among the things Louise enjoyed most. Louise loved conversation and considered herself very fortunate to have had so many caring and fun friends who were such good company these many years.

Louise leaves her four children and their spouses Brian (Sueli) of Somerville, MA, Leigh (Donovan) of New York City, Jim (Maura) of West Hartford, CT and John (Holly) of Jacksonville, FL; and her grandchildren Ashlyn and Colin Delaney of West Hartford and Jack, Grace, Julia and Owen Delaney of Jacksonville. In addition to her parents and Jack, she was predeceased by her brother James.

Services will be private. A Memorial Mass and celebration of life are planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers, Louise's family asks that you raise a glass with a smile and a fond memory.

What a lovely lady Louise was and I’m so happy to have known her. She was to come to my house for lunch the day after she died so her death was quite a shock. I wanted to get the “movie group” together before we were stuck inside for the winter. When we would pick her up for the movie, she would come out with a big grin on her face and a twinkle in her eye. After the movie we would grab a bite to eat and she showed us her true Irish wit. She kept us laughing and told us about the “ stars” that were in the movie. She was such fun! May memories of happy times always be with you Leigh, Brian, Jim & John and her wonderful grandchildren that she cherished.

Louise and Jack were Dear friends during the 1980's, and we enjoyed their company at our home on Mountain rd. for
occasional dinners, etc. they liked my art work and chose one large sculpture, a painting, and drawing of mine.. My Benjamin
passed away in2016, but I remember Louise loving travel with her daughter, and her children and their kids meant the world to her! My warmest thoughts to all of Louise's family and sincere condolences.. Sincerely, Joan H. Shapiro

I first met lovely Louise when we were tap dancing students of Miss Helyn. We had a special affinity in that my Mom and she shared the same first name. I then fortunately became reacquainted with Louise at Sunday Mass at St. Patrick St. Anthony, and then again as good luck would have it through a mutual friend, realizing we lived only a few streets away from one another. Over the past many years a number of us, calling ourselves the movie group, enjoyed many, many movie dates together, followed by dinner somewhere in West Hartford. We could always count on Louise to keep us up to date on Hollywood, past and present. Also, because of a mutual interest in Irish history, and her keen interest, I have a book Louise gave to me not too long ago - The Famine Plot. Regrettably I haven't retained the knowledge she had on the subject. Louise was such a jewel of a friend, unforgettable really, wonderful "dry" sense of humor and all around pleasant person to be with. I will miss her terribly. Maureen Grothaus
