Rosemarie (Moran) Ahern
Rosemarie Ahern was gentle but full of passion. It was not always easy to see, but the petite redhead with piercing blue eyes was more than the quiet librarian she appeared to be. Much more. The good-natured librarian at Curie Metro High School was, in fact, a noted francophile, who had mastered the French language. The longtime Evergreen Park resident spoke the romance language with the skill of a native Parisian and visited the city often after her retirement from Curie Metro High School in 1989. "She spoke like they spoke French, but she was not as demonstrative," said her husband of more than 50 years, Patrick. Her love of French culture was great, and she accumulated numerous books on the subject.

Officials at Curie named part of their state of the art media center after Ahern; she donated her books to the school. Mrs. Ahern died Jan. 9 at her Palos Park nursing home from Alzheimer's complications. She was 75. "She was a remarkable woman, absolutely brilliant," said her husband, a longtime Chicago Public School administrator. Mrs. Ahern herself showed great promise as a student, before becoming an educator to generations of Chicago school children. The Englewood-raised graduate of the old Visitation High School received full scholarships to Rosary College—now Dominican University—and to Mundelein College. Years after she double majored in pre-medicine and education, she received a master's degree from Chicago State University.

Raised in the Back of the Yards community, Mrs. Ahern grew up the daughter of tavern owners. Later, she and her husband settled in Evergreen Park, when the suburb was burgeoning with young families moving there from the South Side. All of the couple's six children graduated from college, encouraged by their parents' example, and all have successful careers. "We inspired them to be academically oriented and they were," Patrick Ahern said. At work, Mrs. Ahern's mild demeanor did not interfere with getting the most out of her students. "Even though she was soft-spoken, she was able to get the students to do whatever she said without raising her voice," said principal Jerryelyn Jones. Jones had worked under Patrick Ahern, when he was principal at Lindbloom High School and later worked with Mrs. Ahern when she arrived at Curie in 1982. "She was always involved, but she was never loud about it. Everyone who knew her liked her," Jones said.

So after Mrs. Ahern's prized collection of French books was donated to Curie's media center, the school christened it the "Rosemarie Ahern Collection." Now French students can go to the center and read any of the dozens of books donated to the school. It was around the time of her retirement that Mrs. Ahern had a renewed interest in French culture. She and her husband spent time traveling Europe, especially her beloved France. Mrs. Ahern was a member of Alliance Française de Chicago, a worldwide organization with the purpose of promoting French language and culture. In 1999, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and went to live in the nursing care facility. In addition to her husband, Patrick, Mrs. Ahern is survived by six children; 29 grandchildren; and a brother, retired Cook County Judge Matthew Moran.

Anna G. (Clifford) Murphy
Anna G. Murphy worked at numerous jobs from a very young age. Before moving to California in the 1956, she worked for CBS Hytron, in Danvers MA. After moving to CA Anna worked for Ampex, in Redwood City. One of her favorite jobs was teaching class of religion, for The Holy Innocent, mentally challenged children. She received awards from, Queen Of The Apostles Catholic Church in San Jose, and from the Bishop, for her devotion and excellent teaching skills.

Anna has always loved children, the garden and doing for others. While living as a resident at Barton Memorial Nursing Facility she made many friends. Staff members would go to her room on their break, to have her teach them how to knit. Anna enjoyed making booties, hats and blankets for babies, scarves for just about everyone she knew, and afghans for all of her family members. All dogs that visited Barton Skilled Nursing, received knitted Christmas collars from Anna. Barton Memorial Nursing Facility was a place where Anna had a mission. In the years that she lived at Barton, she contributed a great deal. Her smiles and caring gestures, brightened many residents lives at Barton. Anna handed out "Never Give Up" signs from Fr. Jim Mifsud. They hang everywhere in the Nursing Facility. She enjoyed reading to a blind friend, took residence upstairs to the hospital, to see other residence that became ill and had to be hospitalized. She spent time with those in the last hours of their life, comforting them, holding their hand and assuring them everything would be all right. Before living at Lake Tahoe, Anna lived in Santa Clara CA. When she lived at Valley Village, an independent living facility in Santa Clara, she made many friends there. She brought joy to many of the friends she had there. She missed them when she became ill and had to move to Tahoe.

To know Anna Murphy is to love her. She could discuss anything from politics to sports. Loved to watch Larry King, CNN, football and baseball and Tiger Woods play golf. She also loved talk radio. Irish music was one of her favorites to sing and listen to. Anna made it her business, to understand what was going on, in whatever community she lived in. She was very proud to be able to say, she voted in every election, from the time she was of age to vote. Her strong faith is something that she would tell you, carried her through the hard times in her life. Her faith also helped family and friends get through their hard times. She was always saying a prayer novena for someone. People that knew her said, she had a direct line to heaven. Everywhere Anna has lived she has made friends. Her children's friends became her friends. They loved her like she was their own mother or grandmother. Anna will be missed deeply by family and friends, but never will the memories be forgotten. Anna was a devoted mother. Her family would like to thank Dr. Peterson and all of the Nursing Staff of Barton Memorial Nursing Facility, for their devotion and excellent care they gave Anna. All of you have made a difference for Anna

Virginia L. (Mason) Ahern
Virginia L. Ahern, 85, died May 19, 2006 at Regency Harbor Care. She was born Feb. 10, 1921 to George and Mary Mason in Lincoln, Neb. Virginia was raised in many states around the country but graduated from El Monte High School, Calif., in 1939. In 1948 she married John Ahern and settled down first in Medford, Ore., then in Rosemead, Calif. The Aherns were blessed with five children. Virginia worked as a secretary, then buyer's assistant to furniture buyers for Sears. She also retired after 25 years of service from Sears. Truth be told, she probably had a large part in keeping the buying office going. She enjoyed her job but her family always came first. Divorced in 1964, all of the challenges and financial responsibility of raising five children were on her shoulders and she always looked forward to the time she spent with them.

In 2004 Virginiaís youngest daughter, Kim, along with her son, Kory, decided to move to Whidbey Island to be closer to one of her sisters Kelly and her son Chris. It was decided that Virginia should come too. She moved into Regency in June 2004. She loved the staff and the staff seemed to love her as well. It was truly a great match. Virginia is survived by daughter Kerry Beamon with husband P.J. of Bar Nunn, Wyo., son Michael Ahern of Yucca Valley, Calif., daughters Kelly Whitney and Kim Ahern, both of Oak Harbor and Kathy Heavelin with husband Will of San Gabriel, Calif. She also leaves eight grandchildren: Chris, Kory, Rebekah, Catherine, Jesse, William, Andrew and Allison, and five great grandchildren. A private family visitation was held at Burley Funeral Chapel.

Ahearn, resident of North Salem, NY, since l964, physicist, researcher, and technology expert, whose wide-ranging patents, publications, awards and honors extend over the last 46 years, died unexpectedly on June 15. The cause was heart failure, according to a family spokesperson. Most recently, as Director and VP of Technical Planning, Bill Ahearn was instrumental in the founding and development of Coda Octopus, a company recognized internationally as a specialist in underwater technologies for imaging, mapping, defense and survey and a leading supplier of geosurvey solutions. Prior to that, Bill was a research physicist at the T.J.

Other accomplishments included the development and qualification of high performance silicon multichip packages for high end mainframe systems and optical data channels. Subsequently he worked for the IBM VP of Engineering, Programming, and Technology, was appointed a Visiting Scholar at MIT and a Research Scientist at the MIT Media Laboratory, and in Europe was Multimedia Product Manager. After IBM retirement he had numerous consulting jobs with major technology companies in the US, Europe and Asia.

Bill was born in Sharon, Connecticut on August 15, l937, son of Marion (nee Pillar) and Thomas J. Ahearn, and spent his early years growing up in Amenia, New York, where he graduated from high school and enjoyed baseball, fishing, and other sports. He received a BA in physics from Clark University and a MSEE degree from New York University. His early career in physics included appointments at RCA and later at Sylvania Electronic Systems, working in electro optics and laser development.

Bill had many interests ranging from Renaissance Art, outdoor activities, and sports, including baseball, soccer, tennis, skiing and travel. He was a member of the board of trustees of the Alaska Conservation Foundation from l989-1993, involved in providing funding to environment projects throughout Alaska, including the Prince William Sound Cleanup. Active in community affairs in North Salem, Bill served as Planning Board Chairman, Library President, soccer coach, and Town Councilman. Bill was elected to the Dutchess County Baseball of Fame for his outstanding performance during his youth. He has remained a Westchester representative for Clark University, assisting high school students in the decision-making process about their college future.

Bill is survived by his wife of 44 years, Ruth McKinnie Ahearn, two children Kerry Barberet of Delray Beach, Fl, and Timothy Ahearn of Oakland, CA, a son-in-law Cedric Barberet and daughter-in-law Andrea Zambrana, two nieces Jennifer Ahearn-Goodman and Steffanie O'Sullivan, both of Tucson, AZ, as well as an extended network of cousins, many in Amenia, NY and Dutchess County.

During his military career, he volunteered for the U.S. Marine Corps in 1941, serving throughout World War II with the 5th Division. As a battalion supply officer of B Company, 1st Battalion, 27th Marines, 5th Division, he landed at Iwo Jima Feb. 19, 1945. During the conflict, he rose to the rank of captain and remained company commander of B Company until end of the operation. He was awarded the Silver Star medal for "heroism, leadership in battle and cool courage."

Mr. O'Herron returned to Charlotte after retirement from the military, joining his father in Eckerd Drugs. He built Eckerd from a small organization of six stores, including the first self-service drug store in the eastern United States in Charlotte, to a New York Stock Exchange publicly traded company of approximately 260 stores, eventually merging with the Jack Eckerd Corp. of Florida.

For his contribution to the University of North Carolina, including serving as chairman of the Carolina Challenge Campaign in the late 1970s, he received the William R. Davie Award. He was a longtime member of Christ Episcopal Church in Charlotte, where he taught Sunday School.

He served on several corporate boards, including Piedmont Aviation, Wachovia Corp., BellSouth, Synalloy Corp., Akzona Inc., Piedmont Natural Gas and Jack Eckerd Corp. and later became a director emeritus of USAIR and Wachovia. In the late 1950s, he served three terms in the North Carolina Legislature and was responsible for introducing the first Community College System legislation in 1954. He served on the Advisory Budget Commission in the 1960s and ran for governor of North Carolina in 1976. In addition to serving as president of the Charlotte Country Club and Quail Hollow Club, he was a member of the Charlotte City Club, as well as Palm Beach Everglades Club, the Bath and Tennis Club, the Seminole Club and the Augusta National Golf Association. He enjoyed golf, aviation and snow skiing with his grandchildren into his 80s.

His career included serving as president of the City Council, as the Commonwealth's first deputy secretary of state, and as acting secretary of state.

Mr. Ahearn died Dec. 12 at a rehabilitation facility in Bourne of complications from a fall at his residence on Cape Cod. He was 89. Mr. Ahearn was born in Brighton and attended schools there. In 1929, while attending Taft Junior High School, he met Doris E. Johnson. "They walked to school together in the eighth grade," his son said. She would become his wife of 66 years." After graduating from high school in 1935, Mr. Ahearn attended Boston College because he wanted a Jesuit education, his son said. He graduated magna cum laude in 1940 with a degree in economics. He then attended Boston College Law School. Mr. Ahearn served in the US Navy during World War II.

In 1951, Ahearn successfully ran for City Council. In 1952, he was elected council president. That same year, his son said, the Boston Junior Chamber of Commerce named him and US Representative John F. Kennedy one of the "10 outstanding young men of Massachusetts." He was reelected president of the City Council in 1953 and 1955. While council president, Mr. Ahearn served as acting mayor on several occasions, including when President Eisenhower visited Boston. "He got to give Eisenhower the key to Boston," his son said. In 1957, he served as first deputy secretary of state. Mr. Ahearn retired from public service in 1984. He later did community volunteer work, mostly at the Arnold Arboretum.

Mr. Ahearn ran unsuccessfully for secretary of state in 1960 and lost a bid for state representative in 1962. He also was an adjunct professor at Boston College Law School, New England School of Law, and Calvin Coolidge Law School. Raymond L. Flynn, former mayor of Boston, said he met Mr. Ahearn in the early 1970s. Flynn called him "an extremely capable man whose intimacy and understanding of municipal finances was extraordinary." In addition to his son and wife, Mr. Ahearn leaves another son, Kevin P. of Lynn. A funeral Mass will be said today at 11 a.m. in St. Ignatius Church in Chestnut Hill.

Sister Gabriel Ahearn
HIGH POINT—The rule is that the chapel never be left empty. Someone must be present every minute — at the height of the workday, or in the dead of night, when the only sounds are the swish of the furnace and the chime that marks the hours. And like the old, ornate silver setting that holds the Eucharist in the chapel at Maryfield, the nuns who started this place came from across the Atlantic. As their thanks to U.S. troops in World War II, they wanted to serve the poor and the sick and were offered the Penny Mansion, a big stone house that had been deserted and last used as a nightclub. So the group of young Irish nuns cleaned up the beer bottles, the red tablecloths splattered with candle wax and, 60 years ago, took a leap of faith. With no money in the bank, no backing, they opened a nursing home.

Hard to imagine against the backdrop that is Maryfield today — an army of bulldozers carving out a sprawling, well-heeled retirement community complete with a beauty salon, heated pool and clubhouses that serve salmon for lunch. No, once this was the fledgling mission of a small group of nuns including Sister Gabriel Ahearn, a County Cork native who died last month at age 86. In those days, they lived on the grounds in a small house that had once been a stable. Sister Gabriel slept in an attic, cold in winter, hot and close in summer, and her job was to feed everyone.

Feed them she did — at the original, 22-bed home and through two subsequent expansions that turned the place into a large, modern nursing home. Regardless, she was the first one up in the morning, turning on the warmers and the big gas range, and the last one to bed, after taking a staff member with her down to the basement to check the boilers every night, never going alone. She scrubbed the pots and pans, mopped the floors, put up the stock and cooked from scratch — no cans, no processed food, no cookbook. They picked strawberries in summer and snapped green beans on the porch. And for any resident who didn't like what was on the menu? "She would send a big pot of hot oatmeal down the hall in the morning — she called it 'porridge,' " recalled Hazel Greene, a nursing assistant here since 1972, "and a big pot of soup every night. It was whatever they wanted. And it was wonderful."

In 1964, cook Billy Hairston was only 14 when he came to work for Sister Gabriel, a sturdy, strong-willed nun who did not believe in short cuts. "God will know in the end," she would warn in her lilting brogue, as she taught Hairston the old-school way of doing things — Christmas puddings that took days to ferment, twice-baked potatoes that never came out of the freezer. There was rarely a weekend off, and what was left over in the kitchen, she would load into the car and deliver to needy families, always taking a helper, never going alone. But as the years passed, even Sister Gabriel slowed down, became forgetful and finally went to live in the nursing home herself. For as long as she could, she would try to help. Sometimes she would sit with another old Irish nun who came to Maryfield to retire, Sister Kathleen Clarke, if only to hold her hand. Early on a Sunday morning, she asked for a cup of tea, said she was "ready" and died. The next day, Sister Kathleen, 85, died, too, and after the bishop said a funeral Mass in the chapel, they were buried in two plots behind the old stone mansion, where the mission started out 60 years ago. It was as if Sister Gabriel waited for someone to come with her. She never went anywhere alone.
