Judith Ann McNaney

April 26, 1945 — September 6, 2019

Judith Ann McNaney (Mama Judy), 74, of Mt Pleasant, entered into eternal rest on September 06, 2019. Judy was born on April 26, 1945 in Geneva, NY. She was the daughter of the late Daniel Acquilano and Pasquina Nicandri Acquilano. Judy graduated from DeSales High School in the class of 1963. She married the boy next door, Richard Arthur McNaney, on October 15, 1966. They were married for 41 years before Rich passed in 2008.

Before moving to Mt Pleasant in October of 2017, Judy enjoyed her life in Wilson, NC. She enjoyed the hunt for the perfect object to add to her collections. On any given day you could find her at the antique mall, design shops, Goodwill or the Clothesline, searching for the one thing that would catch her eye. She loved spending time with her friends at the local Starbucks, sipping a cold drink, munching on a bag of popcorn. She loved music & Elvis Presley was her favorite. She often requested "Easy Listening" #848 on the Music Channel. Judy faithfully watched her game shows and you always knew not to call between 7pm-8pm as to not disrupt Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

Judy continued to enjoy her shows after moving to Mt Pleasant. She had a love of fresh flowers and enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels that frequented the bird feeders outside her "parlor" window. She affectionately named one crazy squirrel Clinger and had a hummingbird friend she called Uno. She was courageous and kind, loving and beautiful. She always wore a smile on her face and her makeup was on point. "You never know when you might run into someone or be invited for a cup of tea". She was funny, just like her dad. Always had a way of making you laugh with her "Judyisms". "Isn't it funny how you can feel the wind, but you can't see it." She was simply the best. She was our Mama Judy, our hero.

Judy is survived by brothers, Ronald & Daniel (Colleen) Acquilano of Geneva, NY; daughter Kristine McNaney & son-n-law, Gregory Winch of Mt Pleasant,SC; daughter Jacqueline McNaney & daughter-n-law Katt Lowe of Sherman Oaks, CA; mother-n-law, Iva McNaney of Waterloo, NY; sister-n-law, Diane Allan of Seneca Falls, NY; brother-n-law, Willam Allan of Lockport, NY; several cousins, nieces and nephews. Predeceased besides her husband and her parents are father-n-law Carl McNaney and sister-n-law Kathryn Acquilano.
