Jane Marie O'Neill Obituary
O'Neill, Jane Marie
That was not a "monsoon" on Tuesday August 11, 2015. It was Jane riding her Harley out of this life. Landing with her larger than life attitude saying: "Ok, I'm here, what are you going to do with me?" Jane Marie O'Neill was born 8/15/62 to Walter and Beverly O'Neill in Butte, Montana on the feast day of the "Assumption of Mary". Moving with her family to Scottsdale, Arizona in January of 1964, arriving in a furry snowsuit. Arizona was never the same. Her fierce, genius, and troubled soul and mind are finally at rest, after much travail in her life. She attended Phoenix College and earned her paralegal degree. Shadow, her doggie companion of 18 years followed her on August 12, 2015. Her Grandmother Helen "Mikie" Kane, her uncle and aunt Jeanne and James J. O'Neill, who were her godparents, and Patsy Boyle, her beloved aunt of Butte, preceded Jane in death. She is survived by her parents, Beverly O'Neill of Scottsdale, Walter O'Neill (Carol) of Chandler; her sisters Mary (Bill), Kate (Steve), Nancy (Tom); her brothers Patrick and Casey (Erica); her eleven nieces and nephews (Lena, Erin, Sean, Ian, Cody, Molly, Patrick, Riley, Shea, Finn and Seamus) who thought it was cool to have an aunt with a Harley and an unlimited supply of chocolate for them; her cousins, John Trewhella and Karen Kane; her aunts and uncles; Peg and Jim Sestrich, Ken Boyle, Jim and Carol Shea, Matt and Carolyn Shultz and 26 first cousins - the Sheas, Boyles, Sestrichs, Shultzs and the Bob and Jim O'Neills. The services will be held at Messenger Mortuary, 7601 E. Indian School Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85251 at 6:00 pm- 8:00 pm on Monday, August 17, 2015. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to either or Arizona Humane Society.
