MAHONY, Sherry (Naomi)

Passed away unexpectedly on March 19, 2010. Born in Hollywood, she was a true California native. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Robert, 37 years ago, and moved to Sacramento in the early 1980s.

In spite of her age, she was youthful, independent and forward-thinking. She was a loyal supporter of her family, friends and the community. Her love for her daughters was paramount. She is survived by her married daughters Pat Mahony Getz and Linda LaTendresse and their husbands Randy Getz and Jim LaTendresse. She had unconditional love for her grandchildren Keith and Matt LaTendresse and Camille Getz. Her grandchildren have described her as strong, funny, spiritual, a great T.V. companion, thoughtful and never failed to make their favorite dishes.

Having an avid interest in art, she took classes at Sacramento City College and loved to critique her daughter Pat's art work. She was supportive and loyal to her large and diverse community of friends. After moving to Sacramento, she developed a passion for golf which led to lifelong friendships. As part of her charity work, she volunteered at the American Cancer Society 's Discovery Shop for over 20 years. She was an active member of the Widowed Persons Association of California (WPAC). Adding to her many interests, were weekly card games and bridge. A vibrant spirit, she loved to travel and had a particular fondness for Hawaii and Paris.

Additional survivors include her brother Allen Cheney, his wife and their children. She maintained a close and supportive relationship with her deceased husband's side of the family, especially cousin Barbara Poole and her children.

A celebration of life is being planned for late April.2
