While living in the greater New York City area, Mrs. Mahoney was a communications and advertising specialist. In 1961, Mrs. Mahoney, along with her husband and family, moved to Hoosick Falls and operated the Hoosick Falls Standard Press, and the Washington County Post, which at that time, was the longest continuously operated weekly newspaper in the U.S. She served as the editor, along side her husband, who was the publisher. They sold the papers in 1980.

Mrs. Mahoney enjoyed her family and friends, and the relationships she had over her business career.

She was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Nicholas J. Mahoney Jr., who died in 1985, and a son Nicholas J. Mahoney III.

Survivors include her daughters Stephanie L’Heureux of Laconia, N.H., and Harrie Richards (Frank) Hughes of Glen Cove, Ill.; sons Brian “Biff” Mahoney of Bufford, N.C., and Michael (Nancy) Mahoney of Walloomsac; 11 grand and 19 great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
