Obituary for James J. Malooly

James J. Malooly, born June 24,1931, passed peacefully on January 27 at age 87. He will join his beloved Marillynn, his wife of 58 years, in their next life together. Left to cherish his memory are his children, James (Cathy), Lynn (Charles Blum), Janet Burton (Robert) and Diane Zeitzheim (Eric), and his adored grandchildren, Catie, Taylor and Jack Malooly, Lindsay, Andrew and Michael Blum, Sean, Colin and Casey Burton, and Elise, Brendan and Emma Zeitzheim. Jim was born on the South Side of Chicago to the late James and Mae Malooly. He is predeceased by his dearest sisters and their husbands, Mary Janet McKeon ( John) and Jean Molnar (Robert). He is survived by nieces, nephews and a host of friends, colleagues and neighbors. Jim was much loved by all who knew him.
A graduate of St. Barnabas grammar school, and St. Ignatius High School, he attended his beloved Notre Dame, starting with the class of 1953. After a two -year stint in the Navy he graduated in 1955.
Jim's real estate career started with McKey & Poague, followed by managing real estate interests for John Cuneo. He will forever be remembered for his role as a "life-long resident serving Beverly" with James Malooly Realtors, where he found his passion helping families find their homes in his beloved Beverly.
Jim and Marilyn built a beautiful life together in the Christ the King Parish and community. Jim was a pillar of Christ the King, supporting the school and church in every way, and he and Marilynn were a fixed presence at the 11:00 mass in the fifth pew. He spent many years helping others in the St. Vincent DePaul Society, receiving the lifetime Frederick Ozanam award for service.
Jim remained active his entire life,and was often seen walking or biking through the neighborhood, where he relished his 50 year membership at the Beverly Hills Tennis Club. He was a winner quite often in his weekly bridge group. He was a dear friend, with the biggest heart, to so many, throughout his life. His bright smile lit up a room, and all of our lives. He will be deeply missed and cherished forever, and we rejoice in knowing the he is home, celebrating his 60th anniversary with Marilynn, after having lived a most wonderful life.
