Jim Mahan – March 8, 2019

Jim Mahan, born December 24, 1938, and went to heaven on March 8, 2019, surrounded by family.

He leaves behind his loving wife Gail of 55+ years, daughters Leah and Kristi and son-in-law Don (Leah).  Grandchildren, Tiffany (Todd), Seth, Sierra and Alex.  Brother Harold (Dee).  Great grandchildren, Trevor and Addie and several nieces and nephews.  His brothers Henry, Bob and Duane and oldest grandson Marcus predeceased him.

Jim was drafted in 1962 spending 2 years in the United States Army.  He married Gail in 1963 starting a family in 1965.  He moved his family to Susanville in 1972 and continued his career in the grocery business.  He loved the outdoors and spent his free time hunting, fishing and camping with family and friends.

He retired from Safeway in 1993 and he and Gail were ready to travel.  They purchased a 5th wheel and ATV’s for their adventures.

There will be a memorial service to celebrate Jim’s life on April 13, 2019, at Community Church in Susanville at 2:00 PM.  In lieu of flowers, Jim would be proud to have donations made to VBS-Community Church or any charity of your choice.


Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
