Mary Louise Cona

February 6, 1927 – June 6, 2021


Our loss was Heaven’s gain. Mary Louise (Cirabisi) Cona, 94, passed peacefully at the Kansas City Hospice House on Sunday, June 6, 2021.
Mary was known for her warmth, profound generosity and thoughtfulness, her practical intelligence and deep wisdom – a devoted and beloved mother, grandmother, sister-in-law and friend; a mentor, inspiration and constant model of grace, and cheerful kindness to all that knew her.


Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Mariano and Anna Cirabisi, her brother Francesco and her husband, Carl Cona. She is survived by her daughter JoAnna (Ron) Cooper, daughter, Carla Cona, son, Mark Cona (Desiree Morgan), granddaughter, Abigail Cona, her sisters-in-law, Fana (Ken) Vogelbaugh, Margaret Reese and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.


Visitation will be Friday, June 18, 5-9PM at McGilley State Line Chapel, 12301 State Line Road, KCMO. A Celebration of Life will be Saturday, June 19 at 2PM at St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church, 16808 Holmes Road, Belton, MO. The service will be streamed live. Burial at Mt. Olivet Cemetery immediately following. Full obituary at www.mcgilleystatelinechapel.com.
