Mary Doris (Whalley) Lannon, 88, formerly of Susquehanna, PA, and currently of Gracious Living Estates, Montrose, PA, died peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday, January 10, 2007, at Barnes-Kasson Hospital. Doris was the daughter of John and Mary (Kent) Whalley and lived most of her life in the family home at 503 Washington Street in Susquehanna.

Doris was predeceased by her loving husband, Donald in 1978; son, Richard in 1995; and granddaughter, Teresa Lannon in 1996 at the tender age of 24.

She is survived by two daughters and one son-in-law, Marcia Lannon, Binghamton, NY, Susan and Stanley Plotkin, Doylestown, PA; one son and daughter-in-law, Donald “DJ” and Sumjai Lannon, Erding, Germany; one sister, Louise Whalley Kane, Binghamton, NY; one brother-in-law, Floyd Lindsay; three grandchildren, Cindy (Storer) and Joseph Cimaomo, Kent, WA; John Scott and Angie Storer, Danville, PA; Deborah Hands, Southampton, England; two stepchildren, Alec and Heide Plotkin, West Chester, PA, Michael and Jan Plotkin, Davis, CA; one great-granddaughter, Nicoleena Storer; many loving and caring nieces, nephews and their families, including John and Kathy Canavan, New York, NY, Kathy Lindsay Estabrook, Penny Lindsay Estabrook, Sharon Lindsay Arthur, Mark Lindsay, Judy Hendrickson Petrilak, Libbie Hendrickson Hobart, and Jay, Gene and Jerry Hendrickson.

Doris was a warm and loving person who made and kept good friends forever. Her best friends were her sister, Louise and Grace Brown, but she had the knack to make everyone feel very, very special because to her, they were. Her love was genuine and deeply felt. She made several new and cherished friendships at her recent home in Montrose, Gracious Living Estates. She was an avid letter writer and was always delighted to have visitors. She was a very devout Roman Catholic and a member of St. John’s Parish in Susquehanna for 65 years before moving to Hallstead, where she joined the St. Lawrence Parish. She was a lifelong member of the Catholic Daughters of America, the American Legion Auxiliary, and a great supporter of all church activities. Her sweet tooth was well known and she always contributed to bake sales to help any cause, and certainly bought goodies from them right up to the time of her death.

For several years she was a tax assessor in Susquehanna. After raising her children, Doris worked at Security Mutual Life Insurance in Binghamton, NY for 15 yeas. One of her proudest accomplishments was scrimping and saving to make sure that her four children attended St. John’s Catholic School and Laurel Hill Academy.

The funeral service was held on Saturday, January 13 at Hennessey’s Funeral Home, Susquehanna, and at St. John’s Church, Susquehanna, where a Mass of Christian Burial was offered by Rev. Robert Simon. Burial, St. John’s Cemetery, Susquehanna.
