I never met Mrs.McShane..but I knew her through Derry and my sister Gay…and as they talked the phrase ‘she was a piece of work’ jumped to mind..a giant heart..always there for those she loved, a fighter even in the face of so much struggle, the proverbial tough as nails Irish mom..
God bless you on yur next road and keep watch over yur family…

With great sympathy we send our condolences to all the MacShane family on the passing of your mom. I will always remember the great dinners your mom would make for us in grand avenue in the Bronx NY. She always made us feel welcome and comfortable in her home. She had a great heart. We will miss her. Love David and Maureen Hannon
