Barbara Mahoney, 87, passed away peacefully February 23, 2017 with family by her side.

Barbara grew up in Superior, Wisconsin where her dream of figure skating in the ice follies became a reality. She performed throughout the U.S. with the Shipstads and Johnson Ice Follies from 1946 to 1951. In 1952 Barbara married Jim and she moved to her favorite city, San Francisco. She was a member of St. Gabriel’s parish for over 60 years. She was devoted to her family. She followed her favorite sport personalities with enthusiasm in golf, tennis and especially the 49ers. Barbara was an avid reader with amazing recall and wonderful sense of humor.

Barbara was preceded in death by her husband Jim, brother Don O’Brien and her beloved “twin” brother Jack O’Brien. Her memory will be forever treasured by her six children Diane Stafford (Mike), Tom Mahoney (Linda), Ed Mahoney, Jim Mahoney, Pat Mahoney (Tina), Tim Mahoney (Juggie) and grandchildren Ray, Trevor, Shannon, Tommy, Timmy, Stephanie, Jimmy, Savannah, Tyeler, Kayla and Tyler as well as many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. She will be fondly remembered for her unconditional love and irresistible laughter.

Arrangements by Adobe Creek Funeral Home. Burial services at Holy Cross will be private. A Celebration of her life will be held in April. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to a veterans organization. for more information
