Mary Jane Kiley, CDP

March 14, 2011

Age 73, of McCandless Township, on Monday, March 14, 2011. Sister Mary Jane Kiley (formerly Mary Carmen), entered religious life at the age of 15 from St. Kilian Parish in Mars. She was trained as an educator and taught in Pennsylvania: Carrick, Etna, West End, Glassport, Sharpsburg Beaver Falls, Glenshaw and Castle Shannon; served as Principal at St. Mary's, Herman; St. Joseph parish in Dover, Ohio; and in Detroit. But she was, perhaps, proudest of her work as an Addiction Counselor, having herself suffered much with that disease. Many lives were touched and saved by her willingness to share her personal struggles, as she led them toward their own healing. Sister worked as Addiction Counselor at Liberty Center in Wooster, Ohio, Marion Area Counseling Center in Marion, Ohio, and at the Brighton Woods Treatment Center in Pittsburgh. While there, she was given the prestigious Linda Rosen Memorial Award in 1991 for her "outstanding direct care service provided to our patients." Preceded in death by her parents, Mary Loretta (Brandt) and Edward Kiley. Survived by brothers Charles, Richard, Kenneth, David, and Thomas, and one sister, Dolores Marquart, and loving nieces and nephews, and Sisters and Associates throughout the world. Let it be said of her that no one who came to her for assistance was ever turned away. Friends received Friday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., with the wake service at 7:00, at Providence Heights Motherhouse. Funeral Mass Saturday at 11:00 a.m. in the Mother of Divine Providence Chapel. Memorials may be made to the Sisters of Divine Providence Ministry Fund, 9000 Babcock Boulevard, Allison Park, PA 15101 or www.divineprovidenceweb.org
