Mary Horan, Age: 95
Oct 22, 1923 -- May 8, 2019

Mary Horan, 95, Kansas City, KS, passed away Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at Sunrise of Lenexa. Visitation will be Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 10 a.m. at Holy Angels Church, Basehor, KS, with a funeral mass to follow at 11 a.m. Private interment at Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to Bishop Ward High School.

Mary was born on October 22, 1923, to Andy and Mary Stewart. She graduated from Ward High School in 1941. On April 8, 1943, she married Cornelius “Connie” Horan. They were married 61 years until his death in 2005. After earning her RN from St. Margaret’s School of Nursing in 1971, she worked at Providence Hospital and then for Drs. Ernest and Gaylord Neighbor.

She was the last surviving member of the WA-HI club, a social group she and her high school friends formed in 1939. After the war, it evolved into a bridge club that included their husbands, and the group met regularly for nearly 70 years.

Mary was a warm and welcoming presence who always had a song in her heart (and frequently on her lips). Her bright spirit did not dim with age, and she filled our lives with light until the very end.

Mary was preceded in death by her husband Connie, sister Elizabeth Malloy and daughter-in-law Zita Horan. She is survived by four children: Neal Horan (Jakki); Michael Horan; Mary Pat Corder (Toby); and Margaret Hart (Bob); 10 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Your mother was a welcoming, warm person who was very kind to me as a Kansas transplant when I came here to go to KU and met Margee my first week in the dorm. She fed me delicious food more times than I can count! I will always remember her smile and laugh fondly. Donna Calvert

Deepest sympathy for your loss, Mike, but it's a consolation to know your Mom will have a great Mothers Day reunion with Zita!! You and your family will be in our prayers.

Our sincere condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one. The bible assures us that our heavenly father is aware of our pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). It also gives us the promise that there will be a resurrection and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4). It is our hope that the power of God’s Word will help to ease your sorrow as you cherish the loving memories you shared together.

Mike, I was saddened to hear of the death of your Mother. She was a lovely person and always kind to me when we would meet. My late Mother always thought very highly of her. They would meet at Alter Society, etc. She and your family will be in my prayers. Cathy Stone
