Judith A. (McClain) McCann

March 7, 1938 ~ October 30, 2020 (age 82)


Judith A. McCann of Beaver Falls died on October 30, 2020 at Heritage Valley Medical Center.

Born in New Brighton, Pennsylvania on March 7, 1938, Judy was the daughter of the late Robert and Ruth McClain. Judy attended Beaver Falls High School and continued her education at Edinboro State College, graduating with a degree in Art Education. She taught art at Beaver Falls Middle School for more than 30 years. 

Judy sang with the Beaver Valley and Golden Triangle Chapters of Sweet Adelines for more than 40 years, where she loved performing with the chorus and spending Monday nights with her friends. She worked on costume design, chapter publicity and their annual scrapbooks. Judy relished her travels to many destinations around the world with Sweet Adelines and her girlfriends from the chorus.

She spent the winters of her retirement years with her husband John, in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, where she enjoyed painting, reading, sewing, and relaxing in the sun. She took great pleasure in entertaining her children and grandchildren there, and felt lucky to spend time in New Smyrna with their many friends from around the country.

Judy is survived by her husband, John McCann of White Township, her daughters, Darcy McCann (Steve Hornacek) of Madison, Wisconsin, and Holly McCann (Alan Hawthorne) of Carnegie, Pennsylvania along with her grandchildren Claire, John, and Sadie Hornacek, and Eve and Leah Hawthorne.
