She was 82 and lived at 184 Sunhill Terrace, Syracuse.

Mrs. O'Hern was a life resident of the Syracuse area. Before working in the Finance Department at City Hall, she worked part time while raising her family. At City Hall, she was noted for arriving to work, no matter the weather. "When a lot of people couldn't make it in, they could always depend on my mother being there," her daughter said. Mrs. O'Hern was an active Democrat, serving as a committeewoman for the First Ward on Syracuse's North Side many years. "One of her pride and joys was Mel Zimmer. She campaigned for him," Silvia said. Mrs. O'Hern was diagnosed with cancer 17 years ago. She was in Florida in February for an annual two-week vacation with her sister, when she became ill. Her daughter called her "a great lady. She was a firm believer: If you want something in this world, you work for it. If you go out for something in this life, you have to earn it. It doesn't come to you."

Mrs. O'Hern's life revolved around her family. "She never thought about any of her needs. It was always our needs or other people," her daughter said. Mrs. O'Hern was a communicant of Most Holy Rosary Church and formerly of St. John the Baptist Church, both in Syracuse. Surviving are three daughters, Elizabeth Silvia of Syracuse and Patricia Kolodzie and Mary Indick, both of Mattydale; a son, William O'Hern of Fineview, Jefferson County; a sister, Catherine Kimball of Syracuse; 13 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
