Obituary for Mary Beth McLaughlin

Mary Beth McLaughlin, 83 of Peoria, passed away at 2:10 AM on Sunday, August 15, 2021 at her home. She was born October 10, 1937 in Teaneck, NJ to John and Margaret (Daly) Short. She married Dr. Daniel McLaughlin on June 5, 1961 in St. Louis, MO. He passed away on August 7, 2010 in Peoria.

She is survived by two daughters, Kathleen (Jason) Marks of Peoria and Peggy (Mike) Kelly of Fort Wayne, Ind.; three sons, Dan (Angie) McLaughlin of Fort Wayne, Ind., Kevin (Laurie Donlan) McLaughlin of Peoria and James (Mary) McLaughlin of San Clemente, Calif.; and grandchildren: Matt (Samantha) McLaughlin, Kelly McLaughlin, Bryan McLaughlin, Katie and Jack McLaughlin; Cooper and Courtney Inman; Natalie, Maggie, Joe and Danny Kelly; Michael McLaughlin, Alysa (Charlie) Clark, Jake and Abby (Drake) Jackson.


She was preceded in death by her parents, and a son Mike who passed in 1982.

Mary attended St. Louis University where she graduated with her Bachelors of Nursing. It was also at school that she met Dan, her beloved husband of 49 years. She worked as an RN, then she decided to stay home with her children. They would all agree she was the best mom ever. Mary wasn't just a mom to her kids, she was a mom to everyone, opening up her heart and home to everyone. She was very active in her faith, participating in Cursillo, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.


A funeral Mass will be 11:30 a.m. Wednesday August 18, 2021, at St. Vincent Church. Father Willard will officiate. Visitation will be 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday August 17, 2021 at the church. Further visitation will be one half hour before services at the church. Entombment will be in Resurrection Mausoleum.

Memorials may be made in Mary’s name to Heller Center for Kids with Cancer at OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois or Mike McLaughlin Scholarship Fund. 2801 W. Farmington Rd. Peoria, IL 61604.
