Mona Mulholland, 91, who retired 30 years ago to a cottage she and her husband owned on Neck Path in Springs, died at home on Sunday.
“They retired out there because it reminded them of Ireland,” said her son Michael Mulholland of Dix Hills.
Born in Leitrim, Ireland, on March 3, 1922, Mrs. Mulholland immigrated to the United States after World War II and settled first in the Bronx, and later Yonkers, with her husband, the late Michael Mulholland.
Mrs. Mulholland was a stay-at-home mom, raising her three children while her husband ran a plumbing and contracting business. In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting, recalled her son, who said that she made gifts of her crocheted blankets, scarves, and other items to her family.
She is also survived by two other sons, John Mulholland of Staten Island and Victor Mulholland of Hicksville, and two grandchildren.
Mrs. Mulholland was a member of Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church in East Hampton and enjoyed attending parish events, according to her son.
The family will receive visitors at the Yardley and Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton from 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow and from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday. A funeral Mass will be said at Most Holy Trinity on Monday at 10 a.m
