Woburn passed away early Saturday morning at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington
after a lengthy illness. He was the husband of M. Faith (Sweeney)
Shaughnessy for fifty-three years. Born in Woburn eighty-three years ago he
was the son of the late William H. and Margaret (Devaney) Shaughnessy. He
grew up in the South End of Woburn and graduated from Woburn High School
Class of '36. He then furthered his education at Bentley School of Accounting
and Finance.
Mr. Shaughnessy made his debut in the business life of the city as he
accepted employment at Gorin's Department Store. Since beginning there he
has served in may capacities in public life including; Comptroller at the
Woburn Daily Times for fifteen years; Four years as a member of the Woburn
School Committee, Two years as a member of the Woburn City Council, Four
years as Mayor of Woburn, Four years as a member of the Massachusetts
Great and General Court as a State Representative; Member of a special

Assoc.; Director and one of the founders of Woburn Little League; Director
and passed Secretary of the Woburn Boys Club; Director of the Woburn
YMCA; Owner and Chief Executive of Wells Package Store.
"Bill" as he was popularly known to his host of friends and associates began
his political career in 1947 when he was elected to the School Committee,
where he served for four years. He then went on to the chambers of the City
Council at City Hall in January 1954 as he assumed his seat representing Ward
2. He retained that seat for one two year term when he decided to vie for the
office of Mayor. It was quite a heated contest against incumbent Francis H.
Murray Jr. but when the final count was tabulated Shaughnessy was the
victor.
He remained in office for four years 1956 through 1960 and presided over the
construction of more new school buildings across the city than had ever
before or since been undertaken.
In 1958 he received the nod from the Democratic State Convention delegates
to carry the party banner as their candidate for state Treasurer. However the
magic name of John Kennedy was too much to cope with even though there
was no relation to the famed Kennedy family and Bill was defeated.
In 1975 he arrived at the State House to assume his seat as a member of the
House of Representatives and served in that capacity for four years
representing the people of Woburn, Melrose and Stoneham. Bill has been to
date the only person in the city to have held four political offices.
In Civic life he was a member and past President of the Woburn Rotary Club,
and former member of the Lions Club and active with the St. Pius X. General
Assembly Knights of Columbus. Despite his involvement in numerous
organizations and activities his first and foremost priority was his wife,
children and grandchildren. During the summer months Bill and his family had
spent a great deal of time in Kennebunkport, Maine. He was a very
enthusiastic spectator of the sporting events in the city, particularly those in
which his children and later his grandchildren were active year round.
Preceding him in death were his brothers, Robert M. and John J., and his
sisters Mary Mohan, Josephine McCarthy, Nora and Marjorie Shaughnessy.
Surviving in addition to his wife Faith are two daughters Ellen F. Longo and
