Patsy, Perseverance,
and Peace

“Patsy, Perseverance, and Peace” goes beyond being a memoir. It ponders the extent of one’s originality and discusses the degree in which both family and environment shape one’s life.   McMahon’s book’s underlying theme is the importance of examining both one’s joyful and challenging influences and then utilizing that recognition to find a full and meaningful life.  Mary Anne McMahon never met her sister, Patsy, but she has felt the essence of her sister’s life every day. Patsy passed away at age six, a year before McMahon’s birth. Despite such loss McMahon’s mother often told her. “That the best thing one can have at the end of one’s life is peace.”  Those words shaped her life and inspired this book.
