Laura “Nanna B”  Owen



Laura B. (Hickey) Owen, “Nanna B”,  a lifelong resident of Malden, passed away on Thursday, August 2, 2018, after a brief illness.  Laura was born in Everett in 1930, the daughter of Arthur and Laura Hickey.  She was raised in Malden,  and after completing her education, she first assisted her mother with the raising of her younger siblings, before going to work at the Schraffs Candy Company in Charlestown.  Later in life she worked as a Home Aide, where she would help people with cleaning and other chores around the home.  She loved the ocean and visiting the beach, and would regularly walk the children from Malden to Revere Beach.  She enjoyed taking spur of the moment trips to NY City, sometimes just for lunch.  She had a wonderful sense of humor, and treasured spending time with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Kathleen M. Owen of Malden, Robert F. Owen of Malden, Richard M.  Owen  of Carver, Deborah A. Legros of Fitchburg, John “Jack” of Malden, William T. Owen of NY, James K, Owen of Melrose, Joseph Ferguson of WA, her 14 grandchildren, and her 3 great grandchildren.

Laura was preceded in death by her daughter Theresa Owen, and her siblings, Arthur Hickey, John Hickey, Mary Hickey, and Thomas Hickey.
