HO-HO-KUS, N.J. -- Mary C. (Montgomery) Noone -- a Ho-Ho-Kus resident, formerly of Ridgewood -- died on Thursday, Feb. 9. She was 80.
Born in the Bronx, her parents died when she was a young child. "She was lovingly raised and eventually adopted by her aunt and uncle, Lilly and Daniel Montgomery," information from the funeral home noted.
Noone went to work for State Farm Insurance after her children were in school, and she worked there for 25 years. She was a parishioner of St. Gabriel the Archangel Church, in Saddle River.
"All that knew Mary will remember her as an avid sports fan (especially the NY Giants)," the funeral home added. "Mary was a true dog lover and had many dogs over the years. She will be greatly missed by her final furry companion, Finn."
She is survived by her children, Jim and Amy Noone of Mahwah; Liz and Peter Haynes of Wilton, Connecticut; Mary Ellen and Brian Sayre of Nanuet, New York; Peter and Jan Noone of Mercer Island, Washington; Denise and Matt Blair of Tewksbury, Massachusetts; and Patrick and Chrissy Noone of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Noone is also survived by her 17 grandchildren -- Delia, Maureen and Sam Haynes; Mickey, Lily, Thomas, Mathilda, Paul, Madeleine and Jack Noone; Brendan, Bridget and Connor Blair; and Brian, Mary Pat, Liam and Maeve Sayre -- and her sister Betsy Sweeney.
She was preceded her husband of 59 years, James; parents Joseph and Mary (O'Neill) Gallagher; brother Stephen Gallagher; sister Eileen Mullins; and sister-in-law Sheila Hagaman.
