Marjorie Ann Cahill (McCullough) of Overland Park, Kansas passed away on September 23, 2023, just days after her 95th birthday. She was born to Gerald and Florence (Manley) McCullough, on September 1, 1928. An only child, she was born and raised in Kansas City. Marge often took pride in knowing all the back roads to shave moments off travel time. She attended St. Peter’s Catholic Grade School and Bishop Hogan High School. After graduation she took a job doing window design at Harzfeld’s. A lover of art, she also completed some college courses to help expand her craft.
It was a church function, at St. Agnes, where she met her future husband Bill Cahill, while washing dishes. She fell in love with his black curly hair and pretty car. They married May 7, 1949, and went on to have nine beautiful children, six boys and three girls. Her greatest role in life was truly being a mother. A devote Catholic, Marge was an active member in her parish, Cure’ of Ars. She was a part of the Legion of Mary and was a Eucharistic Minister, delivering the most blessed sacrament to those in nursing homes.
In addition to being an incredible mother, Marge was an even better grandmother to her twenty-three grandchildren and twenty-nine great grandchildren. If there was one thing she truly loved, it was being a Nana. Marge had an uncanny knack for making any and everyone feel so special, even in a room filled with people. She will be greatly missed by every life she has touched and should be remembered through her devotion to The Blessed Mother.
Marge was preceded in death by her parents, Gerald and Florence McCullough, husband William Cahill, son Michael Cahill, and daughter Mary Ann Cahill she is survived by seven children: Bill Cahill (Megan), Tim Cahill (Sandy), John Cahill (Lisa), Terry Cahill (Dee), Dan Cahill (Carolyn), Meg Sell (David), and Patty Woulfe (Steven), as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren. Visitation and Rosary will begin at 9:30. Mass of Christian Burial 11:00, Friday September 29th, at Cure of Ars Catholic Church, 9401 Mission Road, Leawood, Kansas.
