Elizabeth Maher

Elizabeth Maher, a longtime resident of New Rochelle, passed away on March 23, 2017. She was 90.
Elizabeth was born on November 29, 1926 in the Bronx, NY to the late Otto and Alwine (Ehbrecht) Gries. She attended Blessed Sacrament School, Ursuline School, and Georgetown Visitation Academy in Washington, D.C. She married her husband John F. Maher, who predeceased her in 1969. She was a parishioner of Blessed Sacrament Church and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. For over 60 years, she not only raised six children, but welcomed their friends into her home, where they were cared for as if they were in their own homes. She was a wonderful grandmother, aunt and adopted mother of many, and those who knew her understand why she was so special.
She is survived by her five children Theresa Maher Koslow, Andrew (Susan) Maher, John Maher, Cathy Maher (Edward) Smith and Eileen Maher (Vincent) Illuzzi; her nine grandchildren Alison Maher, Samantha Maher, Daniel Maher, Erin Maher Pawell, James Desrochers, David Desrochers, Vincent Illuzzi, Kevin Smith, and Clare Smith; her three great grandchildren Benjamin Pawell, Adam Pawell, and Nora Horan, and devoted nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her son Christopher Maher and her siblings Arthur Gries, Hildegard Seiler, and Josephine Gibson.
Visiting Hours will be on Sunday 3-5 & 7-9pm at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel Inc., 16 Shea Pl., New Rochelle, NY. A Mass is scheduled for Monday 9:30am at Blessed Sacrament Church. Interment will follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
