Our San Antonio Church Community sadly announces the passing 2 months ago (May 3rd) of Jane (O’ Toole) Cranley at the age of 92. Jane and her late husband, Edward who passed away on October 19, 2010 were longtime supporters and benefactors for many years in the history of our church. They were both born in Medford, Massachusetts where Paul Revere rode to on his midnight ride, where the inspiration from a sleigh ride “Jingle Bells” was penned, and the poem that later became the song “Over the River and through the Woods” was composed. The town of Medford on the Mystic River, 7 miles from Boston became home to many Irish Americans such as the O’Toole’s and Cranley’s. Ed and Jane were married during the time he proudly served our country as a Naval Aviator in World War II and Korea and were together for 60 years. They located to Cincinnati when Ed’s father, John J. Cranley acquired Willis Music Company in 1955. Ed joined his father in the company that soon became the leading publisher for teaching methods and solo pieces. In 1965, Ed became President of the company that was established in 1899 and continued for the next 59 years with Jane’s support to see the Willis Music Company prosper. The team of Ed and Jane were dedicated to their family of 5, their Catholic Faith, and their community. They were very excited to be a part of their children’s and grandchildren’s lives and experience the growth of their family owned company when their son, Kevin Cranley succeeded his father as President in 1990.
We send our thoughts and prayers to the Cranley and O’Toole Family Members and to their children, Son, Kevin and wife Debbie, Daughters: Kathleen and husband John Rudnick, Nancy Cranley, Lynne and husband Gary Hood, Terry and husband Peter Flottman. Jane also leaves 14 Grandchildren and 14 Great Grand Children, and their good friends Joe and Mary Ann Cupito. Preceding Jane besides her beloved husband Edward were older brothers Richard and Francis O’Toole. Jane will be missed and mourned by her many friends and golfing buddies around the Crestview Hills area of Kentucky and all her friends from San Antonio Church who will always be indebted to Ed And Jane Cranley for their support.
