Obituary - Mary C. O’Hara

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/23/24 | 2/23/24

Mary Christine O’Hara, passed away peacefully on February 17, 2024 at St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany.  She faced her illness and its consequences with strong faith and determination.

Born March 19, 1951 in Margaretville to Tom and Betty (Hubbard) O’Hara and grandparents Albert & Clara (Kipp) O’Hara and Merel and Ella (Briggs) Hubbard.

Mary proudly worked as a Flight Attendant, traveling the world, for Northwest and Delta Airlines for over 25 years.  Her travels took her to 16 countries, each Canadian Province and all 50 states, including a trip on the Concorde and the Queen Elizabeth II. 

Prior to returning to Prattsville, Mary made homes for herself and her family in Minnesota and Michigan, where she also volunteered at the Freedom Center, in support of Veterans, at the Detroit airport.  She loved Michigan and her life there.

She also loved her family history and becoming the “inn keeper” at the Laraway Inn – aka, the family home.  A known homebody, she loved decorating, sewing, baking and cooking and yard work.  As an avid reader, one of her favorite pastimes was visiting the Windham bookstore.

Mary leaves behind her devoted son, Ryan Bulle, daughter, Shannon O’Hara Pelham and grandson, Dalton. She is also survived by sisters, Ann & Erin O’Hara and brother-in-law, Steve Meyer and sister-in-law Nancy (Haynes) O’Hara.  Several nieces and nephews, many Hubbard cousins and special cousins Mary Lou Parr and Pat Daly.  Her life and memory is also celebrated by long-time friends, Steve Corino and Curt Momsen, in addition to many other friends far and wide.    

Mary is predeceased by her parents and brother Michael Thomas O’Hara.  A visitation will be held at Decker’s Funeral home in Windham from 10:30-12:00 on Saturday, February 24, followed by a Catholic Mass at St. Theresa’s at 12:30.  A graveside service will follow at Fairlawn Cemetery in Prattsville.

Cash donations, preferred in lieu of flowers, to be shared in Mary’s memory with the Zadock Pratt Museum and for special projects in collaboration with Briars & Brambles Books.

May you rest in peace and fly forevermore.
