Obituary for Mary Susan Twomey

Mary Susan Twomey
of Palatine

Mary Susan Twomey, 67, of Palatine, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on April 27th, 2018. She was born July 8, 1950 in Miami Beach, FL, to Edgar and Patricia (nee O’Meara) Kelly.  

Raised in Miami, Mary would eventually trade in the sun for Maryland winters in pursuit of a nursing degree from Mercy Hospital School of nursing. She would later continue her education at Marquette University where she took a chance on a tall engineering student that offered to help Mary move into her new apartment and invited himself to stay and watch the Super Bowl after he noticed her color TV.

The two continued their courtship and married in 1974. They decided to put down roots in Arlington Heights, Illinois, and started a family. She spent the next 39 years as a pediatric nurse spanning everything from the neonatal intensive care unit to non-profit organizations and pediatricians’ offices.

With an eternal passion for children she raised three daughters, helped with four grandchildren, and influenced countless others. She would routinely spoil her grandchildren with surprise trips for ice cream and fascinate them with stories of raising donkeys in Florida.  Likewise, she was always able to calm worried parents about their children's bumps and scrapes along the way.

Mary is survived by her husband Philip Twomey of 43 years; her daughters Kelly (Bill) Eidson, Susan Twomey, and Diana (Josh) Vance; her grandchildren Charles, Andrew, Abby and Claire; her siblings Kathleen (late A.J.) Clark, Carol Miller, Ned (Brenda) Kelly and Elizabeth (Tom) Goeller; and by many nieces, nephews and cousins. 

She is preceded in death by her parents.
