This week, Mercy Center lost one of its faithful supporters. After a very full life, Georgianna O’Connor, mother of former Mercy Center board chair, committee member, and ESOL instructor Tim O’Connor, passed away on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
At Mercy Center, we celebrated our common Bronx roots. Georgianna was born and raised in the Bronx where she lived for 38 of her years. We came to know and appreciate Georgianna over, remaining grateful for her support of our Gala and Annual Fund, both of which enable us to provide for some of the most vulnerable residents of the Bronx.
Georgianna was introduced to Mercy Center by Tim and Peggy and grew in her own appreciation our mission to help women and their families change their lives. Her support helped us offer programs and services that enable families to reach their full potential, addressing the needs of the whole person in a community of respect, hospitality and non-violence.
The services for Georgianna O’Connor include her funeral Mass on Monday, March 15th at 10 am, with friends and family gathering from 9 am, at St. Francis Xavier Church. The mass will be live streamed as well.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Mercy Center in Memory of Georgianna O'Connor. Your generous contributionswill continue the transformation of lives that meant so much to Georgianna.
