Obituary for Maxine Adelle Sheehan

Ticonderoga. Maxine Adelle Sheehan, 89, of Ticonderoga, peacefully, passed away on Saturday, March 9, 2019. Born in Campbellton, New Brunswick, Canada on November 25, 1929, she was the daughter of the late, Samuel and Florantha (Goss) Mooers.
Maxine’s passion in life was to help others. She graduated from The Montreal General Hospital School of Nursing in 1952, and received her degree as a Registered Nurse. She went on to be a stewardess for Air Canada for a short while, but decided that was not her passion. Her love of being a nurse paved the way for many, great professional opportunities. Maxine’s first nursing job was at Montreal General Hospital as a perioperative nurse in Neurosurgery. After a while, she chose to work with specialists in Pediatric Medicine.
Maxine and her husband moved to the United States in 1957. In August of 1967, Maxine became a naturalized citizen of The United States. Her first position was as an Operating Room Nurse at Moses Ludington Hospital. She climbed the ranks to become the Director of Nursing for MLH. In the fall of 1971, her nursing career took her down a different path and she became the beloved, school nurse for Ticonderoga High School. The infamous, Mrs. Sheehan was employed by the district for over twenty years. Maxine then went on to work as the nurse for Ticonderoga’s International Paper Mill. She also worked as a Parish Nurse for St. Mary’s Catholic Church and a hospice nurse for Washington County. Her desire to help others did not end when she decided to retire. She went on to be a traveling nurse, for many years, all throughout poverty-stricken areas in Mexico and South America.
Aside from her love for nursing, Maxine was very passionate about her family, her friends and her community. Maxine’s greatest pride was in raising her son, John and in time, being able to cherish her only grandchild, JC. Maxine was the epitome of a social butterfly. She took pleasure in spending any spare moment with friends. Maxine spent time as a member of the board for the Blessed Sacrament Church of Hague, NY and The Hyde Collection Art Museum in Glens Falls, NY.
Maxine was known for spreading joy wherever she went. Her sense of humor was unmatched. Her kindness and compassion left an impression on everyone that knew her.
Maxine was predeceased by her husband of thirty-three years, J. Roy Sheehan, and her siblings, Hector Mooers, Doris Firlotte, and Marion Ward.
Survivors include her son, John Sheehan and his wife, Lisa (Belval); her grandson, JC Sheehan and his wife, Nadine (Mars); as well as two great-grandchildren, Madeline and Samuel.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Ticonderoga. The Rev. Howard J. Venette, Pastor, will officiate.
A celebration of life will follow.
Interment will take place in the spring at the family plot of Valley View Cemetery of Ticonderoga.
