BREWER and AUBURN Mary Theresa Reilly Kehoe, 79, passed away peacefully Friday, April 4, 2008, at a Brewer health care facility. She was born Sept. 21, 1928, in New York City, the daughter of Francis and Margaret (Flaherty) Reilly. Mary grew up in the Bronx, N.Y., and graduated from Cathedral High School. She attended Hunter College and married George C. Kehoe, Nov. 14, 1953. For many years, they lived in the New York City area, raising their family, which included a number of foster children. After moving to Auburn, in 1975, Mary work-ed for many years in the Auburn-Lewiston area, at Lewiston District Court, Androscoggin Home Health Care and United Methodist Church, Au-burn. She particularly enjoyed working for Mr. Thomas Moser, cabinetmaker. Proud of her Irish heritage, Mary could easily slip into an Irish brogue and offer a Gaelic phrase or two. She loved Irish music and never forgot her wonderful trip to the Emerald Isle in 1996. Mary was an avid reader; when she wasn’t reading, she was crocheting beautiful afghans. She was a member of St. Patrick’s Church, Lewiston and devoted time to a number of community activities. After moving to Bangor in 2001, she attended St. John’s Church. She is survived by four children, Mary M. Reynolds and husband, Larry, of Bangor, Paul J. Kehoe of New York, Robert G. Kehoe and wife, Laura, of Carrollton, Texas, and Anne M. Goyne; and six grandchildren, Katie, Megan, Melissa, Jason, Nick and Jessica. She is also survived by four great-grandchildren, Michael, Isaac, Clare and Ruthie. Mary was predeceased by her parents; her brother, Francis “Buddy” Reilly; and her husband, George, to whom she was married for 33 years. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 11 a.m. Saturday, April 19, at St. Patrick’s Church, Lewiston. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Auburn Public Library, 49 Spring St., Auburn, ME 04210 or Maine Alzheimer’s Association, 170 U.S. Route 1, Suite 250, Falmouth, ME 04105.
