Patricia M "Patty" (née Jaheriss) Mahoney of Bedminster, NJ, formerly of Washington Borough, NJ passed peacefully at home on May 12th after a long illness.
Born in Livingston, Patty was an alumnus of EOCH where she met and fell in love with her future husband, John. She graduated from Montclair State University with a teaching degree. Over the course of the next 40 years, Patty was a full-time homemaker and dedicated mom to her four children. Later, she worked as an aid and teacher to children with special needs at schools in High Bridge and Cedar Knolls, NJ. Children were her joy and purpose in life. She cared deeply for and was loved deeply by those she touched. Patty also treasured her Lord and gave of herself compassionately, volunteering in several ministries at St. Mary's School, St Ann's Catholic Church, and Special Olympics.
