A well-loved member of Philadelphia’s Irish community has passed away. Radio personality Mary O’Kane died Thursday night in hospice, attended by daughters Bonnie Kelly and Teri McQuaid.
Local radio host Marianne MacDonald remembered Mary O’Kane as “a great friend.” MacDonald will be doing a tribute show in her usual noon slot on WTMR 800 AM. Tune in to “Come West Along the Road,” and share your memories.
A funeral Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Church, in Manoa, on June 5 at 10:30 am. Burial at Holy Cross Cemetery. Reception to follow at Sacred Heart Parish Hall. All are welcome.
We’ll have more to share in days to come.
