Lillian E. McNulty Obituary
Lillian E. McNulty was born in Philadelphia on March 31, 1929, and passed away peacefully on April 4, 2014.
She is remembered by her children and their spouses: Donna and her late husband Stephen Leuth, Joyce and her husband Chip Potter, Maryanne and her husband Bryan McIntyre, and Thomas and his wife Annabelle McNulty, as well as her grandchildren, Fawn, Bradley, Wesley, Chadley and his wife Alicia, Riley, Caroline, Liam, Rory, Emma, Shannon, Madison, Ethan, and Isabella. Lillian is predeceased by her loving husband of over thirty-six years, Thomas.
A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she will always be in our hearts.
You could find her at the band concerts, dance recitals, swim meets and grandparents' days. Whether she was stepping off a plane or stepping from her car to be there, Lillian McNulty was drawn to these happy events with her children and grandchildren. Indeed, it was at these events she said many of her happiest moments were found – unsurprising for a woman who enjoyed a life defined by commitment to her family.
The wife and mother of four children and a grandmother to thirteen grandchildren, Lillian was unwavering in her commitment and love of family. A constant fan and supporter, regardless of the pursuit, she was often present for both the big events and the small triumphs in the lives of her husband, children and grandchildren. Her kind devotion will be a lasting legacy.
Upon graduating from William Penn High School, Lillian began working at the Philadelphia Naval Yard as a secretary. After several years of service, she left the Navy Yard to marry Thomas M. McNulty Sr. upon his return from the Korean War, and began starting a family of their own. While raising four children, Lillian returned to the work force again and began her over thirty-year career at Acme Markets where she earned the respect of her neighbors, many of whom she saw on a weekly basis at the store, and of her many coworkers. Following her retirement, Lillian spent many hours of her free time at her local parish, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, visiting her children and grandchildren and caring for her pets, Miss Kitty the cat and Becky the Beagle. Few pets enjoyed such a loving home, and for many years she enjoyed long walks with Becky all throughout her neighborhood.
