2019 Honoree -- Marie McMahon

The Sisters of the Divine Compassion (RDC) are delighted to honor our dear friend, Marie McMahon, President of McMahon, Lyon & Hartnett Funeral Home, at our 21st annual, Divine Compassion Golf Classic at Fenway Golf Club this year. A true White Plains native, Marie was born, raised and still resides in White Plains.  She has been part of the “RDC Family” since her days in first grade at St. Bernard’s Elementary School. In addition to her extensive work to support the White Plains community, Marie has always been a generous and dedicated supporter of our Congregation, forming strong and enduring bonds with many of our Sisters.

“I will never forget how Sr. Mary St. John took me under her wing and encouraged me during my time at St. Bernard’s,” Marie explains. “My family and I are blessed to have been educated by the Sisters, and to have formed close friendships with them over the years. The RDCs have been an extended part of our family for generations, having educated my two sisters and me, two uncles, nine cousins, two aunts, and four nieces!”

Following her school days in White Plains, Marie attended Mount Aloysius Junior College in Pennsylvania. After college, Marie decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and join the family business. She graduated from the Simmons School of Mortuary Science in 1974.

Today Marie presides over a loyal and dedicated staff, including her niece, Katherine Buckley, who represents the third generation of McMahon’s in the business. Marie is a member of White Plains Women’s Club, the White Plains Beautification Foundation, White Plains Hospital, Hospice of Westchester and Peace Outside the Campus. 

Humbled by the thought of being this year’s Golf Classic honoree, Marie is reflective about her connection to the Sisters over several decades. “What sets the Sisters of the Divine Compassion apart is their genuine compassion for others. They are warm, kind and patient women who have given so much to so many, and impacted multiple generations of families. Through life’s milestones, challenges and joyous occasions, the Sisters ‘stick with you for life.’”
