Obituary for an Irish Mom
Elizabeth (Lilly) Mulholland age 85, of Folcroft, PA passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving husband of 67 years and her devoted family on Sunday, November 24, 2019. She married James (Seamus) Mulholland on February 18, 1952 at Ardoyne Catholic Church in Belfast Northern Ireland.
Family, her faith and prayer were her priorities. Her devotion to the blessed Mother and saying the Rosary with her children were very important to her. Our loving Irish mom enjoyed cooking meals for her “gang” especially her much loved Irish Stew and tender roast beef Sunday dinners. Some of her favorite things were: Playing the Slots in Atlantic City and at many other locations, listening to and singing Irish Folk songs with her family and friends, shopping for and giving gifts to her grandchildren, visiting with her children and grandchildren, and she especially enjoyed watching and playing with the grand babies, looking at old photos, and sharing stories from her many years spent in the land where her heart always remained, Ireland.

She is survived by her children
Jerry (Ann Marie), Eamon aka Pete (Patty), Brendan (Janet), Anne, Patrick (Chicky), Karen Saracco (Frank), Jim (Debbie), Rosemary Port (John), Joseph (Colleen) and Michael (Jess).
Her Grandchildren: Eamon (Lori), Eric, Amanda Johnson (Matt), Frankie Saracco, John Port (Kristen), Vincent Port (Beth), Dara Wenzel (Bert), Ryan, Shannon (Christopher) Sean (Katie), Kelly Ann Loucks (Jim) Sarah Starr (Dan), Christie, Caitlin Miles (Pete), Noelle Woodward (Brian), Patrick (Kristen),Jimmy (Meg) Lauren (Rich) & Mike.

Her Great Grandchildren: Kieran, Logan, Shane, Kylie, Quinn, Brady, Collins, Mia, Madison, Emma, Conner, Myah, Sullivan,
Josephine, Avett, Zoe, Sophia, Oliver, Erin, Raleigh, Sadie, Lyla, J.J., Landon, & Mikey

Surviving Relatives, Patricia Sanford (Sean), Mary Downey, Eamon Mulholland (Kathleen) Kate (Frank) Pye, and many, many, more nieces and nephews of the DeVaney, Colgan, Gallagher, Wismere, Smyth, McCusker & Mulholland Families.

Lilly was preceded in death by her parents Joseph & Sarah Smyth, brothers, sisters, brother-in-law’s, sister-in-law’s, and nephews, Gerry Smyth, Mary Colgan(Mike), Kathleen Wismere (Larry), Patrick Smyth, Michael Colgan Jr., Jerry Smyth Jr., Patsy Mulholland (Rosie), John Mulholland (Bridie), Ted Mulholland (Kathleen), Francis Mulholland,
Mary McCusker (Patrick), Bernie Mulholland, Tommy Downey, her beloved Godmother Edith Johnson, and several nieces and nephews in the McCusker Family.

The Mulholland family extends their gratitude to Dr. Minella for his many years of personal care for her needs, and the staff at Little Flower Manor who cared for her every need during the last days of her life.

In lieu of flowers donations to St. John’s Hospice on Race Street in Phila. PA or to Little Flower Manor in Darby PA will be greatly appreciated.

Viewing will be held on Friday November 29, 2019 from 9:00-10:45 AM. Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11:00AM, at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church in Norwood PA. Burial at Saints Peter & Paul Cemetery.
