Sister Marie Ahern
ORLAND—To those who knew her, the late Sister Marie Ahern was one of a kind. Sister Marie, who passed away unexpectedly Jan. 25 at the age of 75 following surgery at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Conn., was part of the HOME organization in Orland for over 35 years. HOME is a small community organization offering jobs, food, education, temporary shelter and home ownership to people in need. The department head of gardening and a close friend from HOME, Milly Grimes, said, "She was a down-to-earth person who knew how to help people. She was compassionate and could relate to all kinds." But that was just one side of who she was. Not the typical nun, Sister Marie was known for having a love of music, whether it was playing it or listening to it. "Her music interests went from hard rock to Irish music. She even played the guitar and spoons," said Ralph Grimes, a web designer who also does IT support for HOME. "She had a Larry Bird T-shirt for a long time," said Sister Lucy Pullen, HOME's executive director. "She liked the Celtics, the Red Sox, the Patriots, but the Celtics were her favorite."

It seemed that no matter what, Sister Marie couldn't sit still. "Before coming to HOME, she taught in the high school Orland had before everything became RSU 25," Pullen said. "She taught history, English, calligraphy and oceanography, among some others." "She challenged others," Grimes said. "I can remember her going to her students' houses to wake them up if they were late. "She'd get to the student's house, and the parents would point to where the room was. She'd go down and get them out of bed," Grimes said. "But she wouldn't do that for long. If you weren't willing to put in the time and work, then she wouldn't waste her time either."

Laurel Ahern
AHERN, Laurel She "ran with perseverance the race marked out before her" throughout her life — whether on a marathon course, working her career in medical imaging sales, or battling through ovarian cancer for the past two years. Laurel Ahern went home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 30. She was surrounded by her two precious children and immediate family members at the home she loved in Sandy Springs, GA.

In her 59-plus years here on earth she blessed the lives of many with her love, light and grace. Her radiant smile and deep compassion will be forever imprinted on the hearts of her loved ones. Ever the coach, teacher and caregiver, Laurel loved well and was well loved as mother, daughter, sister and friend. One could always count on Laurel to be the first to get the dancing started whether at an event with her many colleagues during her years as a thriving sales rep or out on a race course with her running sisters. Laurel regularly volunteered at Spalding Drive Elementary School, Sandy Springs Middle School, and North Springs High School throughout the years that her children attended, always ready to lend a hand. She was involved in middle school ministry at North Point Community Church from 2006-2009. A sports lover, she was a loyal Braves fan and enjoyed college football; most of all, though, she loved cheering for her children on the lacrosse field and helping out in many capacities from score keeping to team mom. Through her final days Laurel continued to focus on others first — she was a joy-giver even as she suffered.

Laurel Ahern was born on September 2, 1953 in Middletown, CT. She is survived by her children, Raphael Ford Smith V and Sarah Reeve Smith, her mother Jacqueline Moody Ahern, step father Cleo Audette and loving sisters and brothers. She was preceded in death by her father David Jay Ahern.

Timothy Ian O'Hearn
Timothy I. O'Hearn It is with heavy heart, but joyous remembrance, that the family of Timothy I. O'Hearn, announce his unexpected death on June 13, 2013 in Austin, Texas. Born on January 5, 1950, Omaha, NE to William J. O'Hearn and Roberta H. O'Hearn, Tim was a beloved son, faithful brother, and overjoyed father, grandfather, and uncle to the family he came to selflessly and graciously lead. To them, to his colleagues, and to his many, many friends #151; which he could make with the turn of his head and a flash of his personal, if not mischievous smile #151; he will, as he always has, exemplify generosity, empathy, and wry-while-deeply-felt humanity.

For the past 35 years, Tim proudly served as President of Austin Foam Plastics, a company he helped build, and continually grow, from the ground up. During that 35 years leading Austin Foam, he labored passionately and spoke eloquently about expanding the scope of his business for the paramount reason of helping to facilitate a livelihood for his employees, his employees' families, and the employees of companies he did business with on three continents. In doing so, he constantly worked to raise the scale of standard compensation for those he worked alongside- as he recognized them: not as subordinates, but as co-workers in delivering excellence to their customers and to each other.

Despite his means, which he primarily used to enrich the lives of his loved ones and benefit the charitable work of numerous local arts and philanthropic organizations, Tim delighted personally in simple, irreplaceable, and unpretentious pleasures: laughter; the kindness, maturity, individuality, humility, and personal success (especially athletic success) of his adored daughters and grandchildren; the comfort and amusement of his cherished mother Roberta, the matriarch from whom he learned his strong sense of equality; a well-planned, while approachable and frequent, reunion of his family; a gift, whatever the size, that might make someone's life feel more dignified and achievable; personal responsibility through encouragement; the truth that all people have something in them worth hearing; listening; speaking (yes, maybe bawdily when called for); watching as others realized the greatness he knew always resided in them; Bob Dylan; The Beatles; having once touched George Harrison's shoulder on a tarmac in Houston as a teenager; honesty; sharing.

He said often how blessed he was to see and interact in the world through frequent travel, but more so, he relished in being able to give the gift of travel, and so self-knowledge, to his many family members and friends. Proceeded [sic] in death by his father William "Bill" O'Hearn and brother Patrick "Bart" O'Hearn, Tim is survived by his cherished mother Roberta H. O'Hearn; his daughter April Abello, son-in-law Carlos Abello and grandchildren Carlos William Abello and Mia Kathryn Abello; his daughters Katherine Devan O'Hearn, Dacey Marie O'Hearn, and their mother Helen O'Hearn; his brothers and sisters: Shawn O'Hearn and wife Charlotte O'Hearn; Chris Satterfield; Brock O'Hearn and wife Carol O'Hearn; Peggy Chancellor and husband Dewayne Chancellor; Kevin O'Hearn and wife Sandy O'Hearn; and Heather O'Hearn Black; as well as many nieces and nephews, and grand-nieces and grand-nephews, whom Tim doted on, supported, and loved profoundly with individual attention and affection.

His life was a grand, larger-than-mortality tribute to us all. In lieu of flowers, and in the spirit of Tim's personal dedication to philanthropy, the family requests individuals and groups to send donations to charities of their choosing in Tim's memory. The O'Hearn family also asks that Tim be remembered in your prayers, as he would have remembered you in his.

A Patriarch is not confined to flesh.
Nor is he defined, even, by his constancy
Of immutable love for those he led.
But rather, burns eternal on this earth
As the torch of promise, and kindness, of hope
He lit in his family—
A common flame
He recognized in all—
Who will carry, in them, lifelong,
Him, to light the way for others.
And so his light never does extinguish.
-Nigel O'Hearn
