Mae was born on March 20, 1936 in Philadelphia to Patrick and Kathleen (Lloyd) Kilcoyne. Mae married JJ Sullivan in 1957 and they started their family in Philadelphia, moving to Prince George’s County three years later. She was parishioner at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Riverdale and was involved with the Teen Club, CCD, and Girl Scouts. She was active at the Prince Georges County Elks Lodge #1778 for many years, including serving as President of the Ladies of the Elks. She moved to Calvert County in 1988. She was a member of Jesus the Divine Word Catholic Church in Huntingtown.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James J Sullivan, and her significant other, William P Flanagan.
She is survived by three children: Kathleen Campbell of Huntingtown, MD, Mary Pat Knight of Glenview, IL, and Kevin P Sullivan, Sr of Port Richey, FL; and two sisters: Kathleen Patricia “Patsy” Perrera of White Hall, MD; Margaret “Margie” Brennan of Maitland, FL.

Mae, the matriarch of the family, was a beloved mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin and great-grandmother. She was a lively, strong woman who relished parties, cherished her family and always welcomed old and new friends. We will miss her.
