O'Brien, Mary Jane




Mary Jane O’Brien, life-long resident of Pittsburgh, passed to eternal life with her Lord and Savior on October 23, 2016. She became a registered nurse following the example of her late mother Virginia. Like her mother, Virginia, Mary Jane worked for many years with the Forbes Regional Hospital. She then worked at Shadyside Hospital before accepting an assignment as a critical care nurse in Italy with the University of Pittsburgh Medical System hospital in Palermo, Sicily. Her work at Forbes began relationships with dear friends who have sustained her through her last illness. She was a friend of Bill W. and was very active in his organization where she had developed many friendships. Mary Jane will be missed by her two brothers, John (Marilyn) of Hyattsville MD and James (Coletta) of Naperville Il, and a sister, Megan McGeary of Columbus OH, as well as her dear friend Michael Parrish of Oakmont PA. Mary Jane was the loving aunt of nine nieces and nephews and great aunt of six, and her faithful dog, Louis. Friends and relatives will be received during a memorial visitation at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. 421 Allegheny Ave. Oakmont on Sunday, October 30, 2016 from 1-5 p.m In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to American Cancer Society or the Humane Society.
