Tribute & Message From The Family


EASTON----Janice (Mone) McEvoy, beloved wife of Leo D. McEvoy, devoted mother and grandmother, talented nurse and administrative nurse, and longtime resident of North Easton, passed away Thursday October 22, 2020.

The second of three siblings, Janice was born August 4, 1934 in Stoughton, daughter of John
M. Mone and Emma (Ledin) Mone, raised there and graduated from Stoughton High School in 1952, honor student, class officer, athlete, and cheerleader. Janice attended Massachusetts General Hospital School of Nursing, graduated in 1956 and accepted a nursing position at Massachusetts General Hospital.

While on a short vacation with a classmate in the spring of 1956, Janice visited the USMA at West Point. While there she had a serendipitous meeting with Cadet Leo D. McEvoy of North Easton. They began dating, engaged, and married in December 1957. Honeymooned at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. In the following military years Jan made home in SanMarcos Texas, Ft. Rucker Alabama (daughter Susan born), and Fort Monmouth New Jersey (daughter Kathy born). Jan enjoyed the service life and meeting new friends. After Leo resigned and joined the Foxboro Company, Janice and Leo settled in North Easton and son John was born. It was a very busy and enjoyable time.

When the children were all in school Jan worked a part time nursing position and the Cardinal Cushing General Hospital in Brockton. A few years later Janice went to work full time to establish and manage a utilization review department program. Future additional Cardinal Cushing General Hospital assignments included Social Service Group, Quality Assurance and then Director of Case Management until retirement after a 30 year career. Jan always managed to take time to follow and support the children and grandchildren in their activities. Additionally she traveled Internationally with her husband, as well as hosting International customers visiting Foxboro. West Point, Mass General Nursing School, and high school reunions were always a special travel occurrence.

Upon retirement Janice continued some part time work in Dr. Kechejian's office and as a Shine Volunteer. Domestic travels increased to visit children and grandchildren in Colorado, Minnesota, and New York. International travel expanded to Europe to visit friends acquired on business trips with her husband. Jan took trips to Ireland researching the Mone and McEvoy family histories. She obtained Irish citizenship through her Grand Father Mone. Jan was an excellent travel companion with an exceptional sense of geographical direction as well as life's direction. One special Pilgrimage tour with her local Parish to Italy visiting Venice, Padua, Siena, Assisi, and Rome, the highlight being her Parish Priest saying Mass in St. Peters almost directly under the main altar in the Irish Chapel, close to St. Peter's grave, on St. Patrick's Day. A four leaf clover event indeed.

Another retirement joy was attending morning Mass at ICC Chapel with her husband. Janice strongly believed in the strength of knowledge and practice of her Catholic faith and enjoyed time with friends. Jan will always be remembered for her sparkling beautiful blue eyes that were a mirror reflection to the beauty of her heart and soul.

Janice will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 62 years, Leo and her children, John and Aedie McEvoy of Milton, Massachusetts, Kathy(McEvoy) and Cameron Law of Grand Junction, Colorado. Janice will also be fondly remembered by five grandchildren, Micah (Lizz), Eli (Sophia), Alexander, Leydn, and James. Her sister and brother-in-law Marilyn and Fred Hozeny, sister-in-law Nora Mone as well as one niece and two nephews, and one grand niece and three grand nephews. Janice was predeceased by her daughter Susan McEvoy and a brother Donald Mone.

Condolence & Memory Journal

We cherished the wonderful time over the last 25 years when Jan accompanied Leo to Germany after Leo's retirement. We met a warm-hearted and open-minded, intelligent lady with a largely interested view on our family. Our kids, too, loved her for her kindness and patience.
We will miss her smile and her charm but we also know her in good hands.

My deepest condolences. I have many happy memories of crossing the street and knocking on the door and being greeted by Mrs. McEvoy to see if Susan and Kathy could come out to play. My condolences also to the passing of Susan.

We were MGH School of Nursing classmates from March 1953-56. She was lovely, graceful and fun. On the occasion of our 50 Class reunion she invited all attendees of our class to dinner at her son's home in Boston. It was thoughtful, generous and wonderful! We were able to be together and share our stories and memories.

My condolences to your family for the sad and painful loss of two loved ones in close succession.
