RAVENA James Patrick Mullen (Jim), 80, passed away peacefully with his loving family with him, Tuesday, November 23, 2004 after a long, courageous battle with diabetes. Jim was born and raised in Oswego, N.Y., the son of the late Frank and Mary Mullen. He was a World War II Army veteran, serving three years in Germany and France. After the war, Jim accepted an apprenticeship under the St. Regis Paper Bag Program, learning the installation of bag packaging equipment and handling bag problems. Jim's job required extensive traveling. He served St. Regis faithfully until retirement. Jim is survived by his wife of 54 years, Pauline; his daughter, Susan (Reno) Giacomini of Glenmont; son, James P. (Diane) Mullen Jr. of Ravena; sister, Suzanne Johnson of Manhasset, N.Y.; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Jim was predeceased by his brother, John F. Mullen (Jack) and sister, Mary Louise Spaulding. The family wishes to thank their thoughtful neighbors and friends for many wonderful deeds and kindness: Pat and Tom O'Neill, Ken and Ann Payrot, Lucy, Mary Tiberia, all our neighbors and friends on Ridge Road, Charlene and Bob Mueller and family, Diane and Neal Fisher, Chuck and Elizabeth Friday and the late Charlie and Bea Fisher, for so very many kind acts. Words are ineffective to thank the wonderful staff of Our Lady of Mercy Life Center in Guilderland. They all know who they are. Their care and dedication are unequaled. They will always be in the hearts of Jim, Pauline, Susan and J.P. Friends may call at the Babcock Funeral Home, Ravena on Friday, November 26 from 3 to 5 p.m. The funeral Mass will be celebrated 9:30 Monday morning, November 29 at St. Patrick's Church, Ravena. Burial will be private. Contributions in memory of Jim may be made to Our Lady of Mercy Life Center, 2 Mercycare Lane, Guilderland, NY 12084 or to the American Diabetes Association, PO Box 2680, North Canton, OH 44720.
