Margaret M. Adams Obituary
Margaret M. Meg' Adams February 11, 1954 - August 17, 2018 San Diego Margaret (Meg) Mary Maureen Mahoney Adams, (yes, she was Irish!) born in Philadelphia, PA, and a longtime resident of San Diego, died peacefully at home on August 17th, 2018 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. She was predeceased by her parents, Captain George R. Mahoney, USN (retired) and Jane E. Mahoney of Mobile, AL. She is survived by her husband, Emidio DelConte, and siblings, Jane E. MacInnis of Scottsdale, AZ, Captain Leon F. Mahoney, USN (retired) (Pamela Jane) of Virginia Beach, VA, Commander John P. Mahoney, USN (retired) of Lambertville, MI, Commander Timothy J. Mahoney, USNR (retired) (Sheila) of Mobile, AL, and Moira C. Finear of Newport Beach, CA. Meg is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, including her godson, Owen Wellner. Meg was a renowned story teller and would frequently have a room full of people laughing at her tales. Many lived vicariously through her stories and adventures. She loved animals, most recently her rescue dog Chance and her kitties Ping & Pong. Meg and Emidio traveled extensively and never a stranger did Meg meet. She was a wine aficionado and a gourmet cook and she impressed many with her fluency in Spanish! Meg loved going to wineries and gourmet food and culinary supply stores, both here and abroad. She also delighted in entertaining her family and friends with the latest products, recipes and techniques she had gathered from her travels or from her favorite local gourmet store or even a cooking magazine. Professionally, Meg was a very successful mortgage banker for over 40 years. There will be a Celebration of Life for Meg on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the Orfila Winery located at 13455 San Pasqual Road, Escondido, CA, from 3 to 6 PM. If attending, please RSVP to 858-695-3499. Meg's family would like to thank her husband, Emidio, for his tireless love, devotion, and care of Meg, especially during her extended illness. She could not have had a better husband and caregiver! In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, Inc. (www.pancan.org).
