Maureen Fudala (Shanahan), passed away June 19th. Oak Lawn resident and St. Laurence High School

by Edward Shanahan

My mother passed away Tuesday night at 9.25 pm. We (my daughters Nichole, Christina, my wife Kathy and son in law William and Nichole's Tommy), were all around her on Tuesday and she passed with me holding her hand and shoulder and talking to her while Nichole held her hand. It was peaceful.

My mother's visitation for the public is:

A mother who raised her child as a single mom and later in life also stood strong and loved deeply her granddaughters and great granddaughter with as much as she did her own son. The night she passed, those at the nursing home who helped her also cried like family.. Mom you will always be loved.

I was looking for a song for my mother and I went to her favorite singer, one she made sure I seen live as kid. This came up and it basically is how she lived her life toward me and also my daughters / her granddaughters.

It says it all.
