  • Birth: He was born circa 1905 at Ireland.2

Polk Street, Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA; Michael and Margaret Woods died in the 1920s. Several of their children, her nieces and nephews, are living with Mary Madigan and her brother Michael Madigan.2
  • Occupation*: James A. Kissane was Laborer at a public utility on 9 April 1930.2
  • Marriage: He married Anastasia "Anna" Woods, daughter of Michael Woods and Margaret "Maggie" Madigan, circa 1959; Anna married her sister's husband sometime after her sister Marguerite died. Anna's first husband had died after only 5 years of marriage. I asked Carleen Maher Malone, niece of Anna and Marguerite Woods Kissane if her two aunts married the same man. She responded on April 13, 2011:
    Yes they did. Anna was married to a Edward Druggan. They were only married about 5 yrs when he died of heart failure. He passed in 1950. Anna was the youngest of the Woods. Margarite Kissane was married about 27 years to James Kissane when she died. Their sister Patrica Fleming thought Anna and Jim should get together and started to play cupid. Many family members felt Anna was too young for Jim, but they married. I believe in 1959 and were married till Anna's death. I was crazy about my Aunt Anna she was the sweetest thing. She had one fault, she was meek. She was old before her time. Now that I'm looking at the date of her death, I can't believe it's been 30 yrs.6
  • Death*: James A. Kissane died in March 1986 at Cook County, Illinois, USA, at age 81.3,4

    My Uncle Mickey was pretty near a perfect man. He was so thoughtful and caring to all, especially to me and my family. It's hard to image going forward without him.

    We were so blessed to have him in our lives. He treated me and my kids as if we were his own children. He spread love and laughter where ever he went and made life long friends along the way.

    Throughout my entire life, my Uncle has had a major influence on me. I'd look at him and marvel at how he always had a smile on his face and could make everyone around him feel better.

    He would never lecture or reprimand anyone, but he lead by example. I can honestly say, I've never heard him say anything bad about anyone and he never complained.

    If you had a problem, he was more than willing to help. If you needed to vent, he was a patient listener. If you needed someone to cheer you up? Mickey was your guy.

    He was never jealous, in fact, he was genuinely happy for those who found good fortune. He would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it.

    One example of his selflessness was when he made a loan to my dad to help him start his company when no else would. He made him that loan even though it was all he had in his savings. Yet, he gave that loan willingly and without any expectation of repayment. That loan was so critical to the success of my Dad's business that he never forgot Mickey's generosity and praised Mickey until the day he passed.

    Mickey was not just a very handsome, generous and kind man. He was also extremely talented. He was a gifted artist and incredibly creative. He could paint and draw wonderfully. He always had a unique and clever art and craft project going on.

    Mickey's smile and endearing personality lit up every room he ever walked into. I'm sure we all agree, Mickey had a special ability to make you smile and laugh.

    He was always ready to share a good joke. I've never met anyone who knew as many jokes as he did. One better then the next. His joyful, kind, encouraging, and charismatic personality made my Uncle everyone's favorite.

    Mickey brought out the best in all of us. Most importantly, he showed us how to enjoy life and how to treat one another. He knew that true happiness is not how much you accumulate along the way, but how much love you spread. Mickey mastered the art of spreading love.

    Thank you uncle Mickey for bringing so much love and happiness to me and my family. You have inspired and influenced so many of us with your beautiful and heartfelt love.

    In closing, I think it's only fitting we end with a joke in true Mickey style. Here is one of my favorites he shared with me along the way:
    One night, Mrs McMillen answers the door to see her husbands best friend, Paddy, standing on the doorstep.

    "Hello Paddy, but where is my husband? He went with you to the beer factory"

    Paddy shook his head. "Ah Mrs McMillen, there was a terrible accident at the beer factory, your husband fell into a vat of Guinness stout and drowned"

    Mrs McMillen starts crying. "Oh don't tell me that, did he at least go quickly?"

    Paddy shakes his head. "Not really - he got out 3 times to pee!"

    God bless you Uncle Mickey. You have certainty earned your place in heaven.4
