Edith Louise Mahoney March 27, 1921 to September 8, 2011 Born to Swedish immigrant parents in western Nebraska in 1921. She was raised on a farm during the depression and the dust bowl as one of five children. She married in Denver in 1946 at St. Dominic's Catholic Church to Charles G. Mahoney who preceded her in death after sixty-one years of marriage. She was a world-class homemaker in the era of stay-at- home mothers of the working class. She was an accomplished seamstress, cook, baker, cleaner and gardener. She was a magician also as she could always prepare something good for dinner the last couple of days before payday and make school clothes last until Memorial Day. She was always there when we got home from school or work and listened to our tales of the day. She loved poetry and baseball. She was the mother of Connie Thomas (Ed), Paul Mahoney (Carol), Carole O'Shea (Kevin), Kevin Mahoney (Barbara) grandmother of 12 and great-grandmother of 10. She died peacefully in her own room in the presence of family and friends. Private memorial mass (day and time yet to be determined) at St. Dominic's Catholic Church, W. 29th and Federal Boulevard, Denver, CO. Crossing the Bar Alfred Lord Tennyson Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea. But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home! Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For though from out our bourn of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.
