Joe McGinn obituary
Posted: 12/14/2017 - by Charlie Narmi
The St. Albert family is deeply saddened by the passing of Joe McGinn. Joe, and wife, Mary Lou, were very strong supporters of St. Albert through the years - in many different capacities. Not only was Joe a parent to children that graduated from St. Albert in the 70's, 80's and 90's, he was a Freddy Falcon award winner and is in the St. Albert Hall of Recognition. Please keep Mary Lou, all of their children and the entire extended McGinn family in your prayers this week and please pray for the repose of Joe's soul...
Eternal rest grant unto Joe o' Lord: And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May Joe rest in peace. Amen
May Joe's soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed through the mercy of God our Father rest in peace. Amen
