Mary Aiesha McLaughlin

Loving Sister

Mary Aiesha McLaughlin, a Manager at QuickChek in Sparta, NJ and resident of Newton, NJ died unexpectedly on Monday, August 2, 2021 at the age of 36.

Mary Aiesha was predeceased by her parents, Philip and Ellen McLaughlin and survived by her seven siblings, Phil McLaughlin, Eileen Kelly, Marianne McLaughlin-Britt, Kellie Fabiano, Julie Hamberlin, Dawn McLaughlin and Joseph Corey McLaughlin as well as fourteen nieces and nephews and four great nieces and nephews along with many cousins. 

Mary Aiesha was born on September 20, 1984 in Newark, NJ and grew up in West Orange, NJ. In 2002 at the age of 17, Mary Aiesha enlisted in the USMC.  She valued her service and is a Veteran of the Global War on Terrorism.  After her Service, she would graduate from Bloomfield College earning a BA in History.

Mary Aiesha was a smart, witty woman that had an infectious smile and a caring nature that warmed the hearts of many that knew her, something she learned from her mother.  She touched the hearts of many with her love of softball by mentoring and coaching young girls during her short lifetime.  Throughout her short time with us, she was a friend to many and was able to make connections that were authentic.  Like her father, she was an avid Giants fan and her high energy and feistiness would prove to be a strong attribute of hers for most of her life.  Mary Aiesha will forever be remembered for her zest for life, outspoken nature, dedication to her family and friends, and above all her ability to take on most of what life threw at her.

Services will be held on Saturday, August 7th from 11 am to 1 pm at Codey & Jones Funeral Home, 54 Roseland Avenue, Caldwell, NJ.  A private burial will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Newton First Aid and Rescue Squad, PO Box 5, Newton, NJ  07860.
