NEWPORT NEWS – Margaret Elaine Mahaney, 90, passed into Heaven on June 27, 2008, to be with her beloved husband, Woodrow ‘Bunny’ Wilson Mahaney.
She was born in Hazard, Ky., on May 10, 1918, one of seven children born to John and Nancy Newberry.
Margaret moved to Newport News in 1938 and worked at the Montey Curb Club downtown, where she met her future husband, Woodrow. Bunny tried to court her but she refused to have anything to do with him until he ‘settled down’ and got a job, which he did at the Newport News Shipyard and Dry Dock.
Margaret is survived by three children: son, James Woodrow Mahaney of Newport News, daughter, Bobbie Chappell of Hampton, and another son, William Earl Mahaney of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. There are four grandchildren, Kelly Boswick of Hampton, Greg Chappell of Newport News, Jason Chappell of York County, and Phillip Chappell of Craigsville, Va., who was her favorite, and numerous great-grandchildren.
There will be a graveside service held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 1, at Peninsula Memorial Park in Newport News.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Church of the Nazarene, 29 Harpersville Road, Newport News, VA 23601.
Arrangements are under the care of Altmeyer Funeral Home – Riverside Chapel, 7415 River Road, Newport News, VA 23607.
