Foudy family remembrance
November 17th, 2015
By Peter J. Fatooh

On Nov. 7 Bishop William Justice was principal celebrant of a funeral Mass for Mary Foudy at St. Gabriel Church in San Francisco. Bishop Ignatius Wang and Bishop Daniel Walsh, along with priests of the archdiocese, were present to attest to the remarkable life of not only of Mary but of her late beloved brothers, Msgr. John Foudy and Father Denis Foudy.

Mary Foudy and her brothers represented the very best of our Catholic faith for the past 100 years. Mary was beloved at St. Gabriel’s.She could be counted on in her support for the Legion of Mary as well as the Ladies Sodality and helping countless parishioners and priests over the decades of her being herself a parishioner there.

Those of us who were privileged to know these exemplary members of the Catholic Church have suffered an enormous loss.It is in knowing how they conducted their lives through their faith that will endure long past their earthly departure. Mary, John, and Denis Foudy were true to their faith, their church, and their friends.They represented all that is good.We are blessed to have known them.
