She married Ara Mosher on June 22, 1957 Margaret Mary was a Master Gardener and the best knitter we ever knew. She could sew and smock beautifully. And she baked a mighty tasty apple pie. NYT crossword puzzles were rarely a match for her. She worked for decades as a nurse and then in retirement put in long hours as a volunteer at a homeless day shelter. She didn’t give a fig how the world judged someone or something. She loved by her own rules. Margaret Mary is survived by her children,Mary (Brendan) Henehan, Andrew (Anny) Mosher, Ruthanne Mosher, Rosellen (John Lono) Mosher, and Peggy Mosher; daughter-in-law Roberta Mosher; grandchildren, Margaret Rose Henehan, Lillian Henehan, and Sarah Mosher; siblings, John McAlear, Rosellen McAlear, Robert ( Cindy) McAlear; sister-in-law, Robin McAlear; special cousin, William Gannon and family and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ara Mosher; son. Matthew Mosher; and brother, Andrew McAlear. Special thanks to Kindred Hospice, Hurley Medical Center, and Dr. Kiran .
