Mary Alice McEvoy
Oct 6, 1941 - Feb 22, 2016
Mary Alice McEvoy, 74, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Monday, February 22, 2016, after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She remained positive throughout her ordeal, with a smile on her face, fighting courageously until the very end, when her pain was defeated and the Lord took her home.
Mary is survived by her son Shaun McEvoy of Charleston, SC and daughter Sherry Johnson and husband David of Manchester, MO. She is also survived by brothers John of New York, Joe and Harry of Florida.
Mary was a fabulous mother who could find beauty in the simplest things. She was a gentle soul with a generous and giving heart, especially when it came to stray cats. She loved shopping with her daughter, playing darts, and spending time with family and friends. She had an infectious laugh that brought joy to everyone around her. If we listen closely, we can hear her laughing from heaven. She will be dearly missed, but will live on in our hearts forever.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Sacramento SPCA in Mary’s name.
