From the Yorktown Funeral Home: Nancy Gormley Monigan died peacefully surrounded by her family on Jan. 31 after a long battle with Lupus. She was 47.
Monigan was born on Sept. 28, 1965 in Brooklyn, the daughter of Anne Malloy Gormley and the late James W. Gormley. A graduate of the former Franciscan High School, she went on to complete some college before beginning her career at Pepsi Co. in Somers.
On July 13, 1991, she married her husband, Raymond J. Monigan. She continued working until her illness made it impossible. She then devoted her time to her family at home.
Monigan is survived by her husband, Raymond; their daughters Caitlyn, Emily and Rayanne; her mother, Anne; her brother, James A. and her sister, Margaret and Margaret’s son, Kevin; her brother-in-law Edward, sister-in-law Robin and their children Edward and Shelby; her sister-in-law Eileen, brother-in-law Raymond, and their children Raymond, Samantha and Danielle; her sister-in-law Ellen and brother-in-law John; and her mother-in-law Margaret. Monigan was preceded in death by her father, James W. and her father-in-law Raymond.
The woman was a devoted wife and mother, a loving sister, daughter, aunt and friend. Her primary focus in life was her three daughters, “her girls.”
Monigan dedicated much of her time to the St. Patrick’s School sports program and went above and beyond whenever anything was asked of her. She will be forever loved and missed in the hearts and lives of those who knew her.
A funeral mass was held on Monday, Feb. 4 at St. Patrick’s Church (new church) in Yorktown Heights with interment immediately following at Assumption Cemetery in Cortlandt Mano.
