Mary Frances (Cannon) Hanlon, age 82, died Wednesday October 21. Born in the Bronx, NY, she was the daughter of the late Peter Cannon and Frances (Cannon) Cannon. She is survived by her three children: John Hanlon of Wayne, NJ, Peter and Kim (Maggi) O’Hanlon of Herndon, VA, and Adam and MaryKate (Hanlon) Hughes of Falls Church, VA; 6 grandchildren, Jake, Winnie, Patrick, and Tommy O’Hanlon and Maura and Molly Hughes; and dozens of cherished nieces and nephews.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband of 56 years, Laurence (Larry) Jerome Hanlon, and by her brother James A. Cannon.
After graduating from Cathedral High School and a brief stint at an insurance company, Mary worked at IBM, where she met Larry. After marrying in 1960, the couple lived in Jackson Heights, NY before moving to Ridgewood, NJ in 1975. While raising their three children, Mary found time to volunteer in support of various causes and to play tennis. Mary also earned her Bachelor’s degree from Ramapo College in May 2000. She was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Roman Catholic Church in Ridgewood for 45 years.
Mary was an exceptionally caring, cheerful, energetic, and intelligent woman. She and Larry were an extraordinary couple who were loved and cherished by everyone in their immediate and uncommonly large extended families.
