Our family helping your family since 1908 - Generations of Excellence


Jean Mahoney



Jean was born in Kitscoty, Alberta and passed away peacefully in Edmonton, Alberta on Wednesday, February 6, 2014 after a brief illness. She is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Eric and three children, Tim (Sylvia), Lori Smyth (John), and Kathleen Mahoney. She was adored by her nine grandchildren, Liam, Devin and Connor Mahoney; Seamus, Matthew (Evah), Sarah, Keelan and Bronagh Smyth as well as Richelle Mahoney and two great grandsons, Samuel and Ari Smyth. Jean was never happier than when she held a baby in her arms. Her faith and her family were her greatest loves. Jean graduated from the Misericordia Hospital Nursing Class of 1952 and worked for many years at the Misericordia and General Hospitals. She spent many years volunteering at Meals on Wheels, the Marion Centre and the MS Bike Tour. Jean sewed and crocheted countless costumes for dance and choir over the years. She was always happily giving of her time, whenever called upon. Jeanís hands were never idle; besides knitting and crocheting, she was accomplished at quilting and upholstery. Summers were spent in the garden, tending to her flowers both at home and at the family cabin at Calling Lake. Jean could be found picking blueberries and wild cranberries at the lake, and a week didnít go by without her baking at least two delicious pies! An avid Edmonton Eskimo fan, Jean could talk football with the best of them. Her life was very full and happy until the very end. Her passing leaves a huge void in the lives of her family and many friends who loved her dearly. A Prayer Service will be held at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home 10011-114 Street, Edmonton. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, February 12 at St. Edmund Catholic Church, 13120 Ė 116 Street, Edmonton. Memorial donations gratefully accepted to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta #202-5913-50 Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta T4N 4C4.

In Loving Memory of
Jean Mahoney
