Kathleen "Kathy" Maureen (O'Shea) Daniels, 65, entered into eternal life peacefully on Sunday, September 5, 2021 at St. Luke's Warren Hospital, surrounded by her family. Kathy faced her brief battle with lung cancer with dignity, grace and most of all courage. She took on every obstacle with a positive determination that was inspiring.
She was born April 14, 1956, to the late James E. O'Shea and Ruth (Dust) O'Shea. Kathy is survived by her loving husband, of 41 years, Robert Daniels, her children; Shannon Mecsey and husband, Joe Mecsey IV, of Stewartsville, NJ, Carrie Daniels of Effort, PA, and Shawn Daniels of Roseto, PA, and her three grandchildren, Vince Bedoya, Joseph Mecsey V and Addison Mecsey. She also leaves behind her siblings; Denise (O'Shea) and husband Bruce Eshak, of North Port, Fl, James and wife Dorothy (Lane) O'Shea, of Annandale, NJ, Richard and Amy (Rappaport) O'Shea, of Annapolis, MD, and Kevin and Sharon (Trischan) O'Shea of Newtown, PA, and many other family members and friends whom she loved dearly.
In college, Kathy excelled in her studies and graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a degree in Accounting and Computer Science. She graciously left the work force to become a full time wife and mother with the birth of her first child. Kathy was a devoted and incredible mother and grandmother. Her children and grandchildren were always her first priority and very well loved.
Anyone who knew Kathy knew she was an amazing person, full of love. She selflessly gave herself and her time to help anyone who needed it.
She was a proud Catholic and a member of Saint Philip and Saint James Catholic Church in Phillipsburg, NJ.
