Obituary

MECHANICVILLE - Agnes M. Sheehan died of natural causes at her home on July 13, 2020 at the age of 95. Starting in early childhood, she was always known as “Murph.”
Murph was the daughter of the late Stephen and Margaret Walsh of West Nanticoke, PA. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from East Stroudsburg State Teachers College in Pennsylvania and a master’s degree from the State University of New York College at Oneonta. Murph taught at both the Stillwater and Mechanicville School Districts for many years in the 1950s. After the birth of her three children, she often did substitute teaching in the Mechanicville schools.
Murph was predeceased by her husband Bill in 2015 and her daughter Marge Martinelli in 2011. She was also predeceased by the eight siblings she grew up with in Pennsylvania's coal country during the era of the Great Depression. (Mary Rita, Peg, Francis, Anna, Joe, Loretta, Theresa and Kathleen.)
Murph is survived by her son Joe Sheehan and his wife Laureen, her daughter Kathleen Sheehan, son-in-law Wayne Martinelli, four grandchildren, Tim and Kelly Sheehan and Erin and Dan Martinelli, and many nieces and nephews.
Murph's local friends will fondly remember her proudly wearing the caps of the Yankees and Notre Dame teams she so loyally rooted for, and City workers in Tallmadge Park and her local garbage collectors will forever remember her weekly deliveries of cold soda and homemade desserts. Her grateful expressions of her sincere appreciation will be sorely missed.
The entire Sheehan and Martinelli families would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Anitta Boston, our home health aide of the past five years, for her extraordinary care and compassion and for bringing love and laughter into all our lives.
Due to COVID-19, services at this time will be private and at the convenience of the family. A celebration of life event will be scheduled when it is safe to gather again for a public sharing of one special life lived. If you wish to remember Murph, please donate to the charity of your choice and refrain from sending flowers due to adverse allergic reactions among family members.
During this extremely difficult time, friends are encouraged to visit devito-salvadorefh.com to share condolences, memories and/or photos they may have of Murph.

Our deepest condolences on your mother and grandmother's passing. It was at your house where I first learned the fundamentals of basketball (thank you Margie) and how to dip rhubarb in sugar. Both your parents always made everyone they touched feel extra special. I'll always remember "Hey Mo, how you doing." Your mother was a treasure and will always be remembered. Aime and I hope your wonderful memories ease your loss.

Dear Joseph, Laureen and Family,
With the understanding that there are never sufficient words to comfort you during this most difficult time, please know that Janice and I will keep you and all your family in our thoughts and prayers. After reading about your Mom’s journey, I have to believe she lived a most complete life. I have often believed that we can learn much about an individual we never met by getting to know the children. And, knowing you as I do, your Mom was a most wonderful Mom, wife and the true source of pride fo all the Sheehan Family.
Take good care and hold fast to all the great memories you have of your Mom.

David and Janice Kissick

Joe, Laureen, Kathleen, Wayne, Tim, Kelly, Erin and Dan. Words cannot express how sad I was to hear of Murph's passing. How fortunate my family was to have lived next door to your family and we have so many wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing her with us throughout the years. She was a role model in so many ways but especially in kindness and she could have written the manual on "How to Always be a Good Neighbor"...
