April 7, 1941 - July 13, 2021
Margaret D. Mooney (nee: O’Donnell), affectionately known as “Marge”, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family on July 13, 2021. Born on April 7, 1941 to the late Patrick and Sarah (nee: McCormick) O’Donnell. Marge was a lifelong resident of South Philadelphia who genuinely loved her city. She was passionate about Philly sports, loved a “Pepsi Cola” and a Tastykake, and City Pizza. As an avid player of the lottery, she never saw a number that she didn’t like. Marge was unsuspectingly funny. Her lengthy list of one-liners will live on forever. She loved her neighborhood and all the people in it. Her mantra was “there’s good and bad in all.” She was a righteous and faithful woman who possessed an amazing ability to see the good in all people. Most of all, Marge fiercely loved her family and would stop at nothing to protect them. Beloved mother of Sean (Joie) Mooney, Daniel Mooney (Kellie D’Andrea), Joanne (Bob) Fenton, Edward Mooney (Letha Perry) and William (Megan) Mooney. Loving Grandmother of Erin (Rich), Sharon (Mike), Danielle, Sarah, Edward Jr., Callie, Conor, Kara, Brock, Jenna, Braxton, Liam, Madyn and Great-Grandmother of Sean and Natalie. Sister of Sister Jude Mary IHM, Charles (late Mary Ellen) O’Donnell, Theresa (Bob) Pacetti and the late Frances (late George) Harrison and Patrick (late Elaine) O’Donnell, Jr. Sister-in-law of Jack (Connie) Maida. She will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and extended neighborhood family. Relatives and friends are invited to her Visitation on Sunday evening, July 18, 2021, from 7-9 PM and again on Monday, July 19, 2021 from 8-10 AM at the Murphy Ruffenach, Brian W.
