Fairfax Station, VA

Amy (Daniels) Goss, age 81, of Messiah Village in Mechanicsburg, and formerly of Fairfax Station, Virginia passed away on Tuesday, November 28, 2023. Born October 10, 1942, in Scranton, PA, she was the daughter of the late Lloyd G. and Ruth (Schumacher) Daniels. Amy earned a B. S. in Education from Bloomsburg University and went on to earn her M. Ed. from Ohio University. She worked in higher education administration for Northern Virginia Community College for more than 27 years. Surviving is her loving husband of 51 years, Galen L. Goss; her brother, Stephen L. Daniels and wife Brenda of Absecon, NJ; her nephew, Keith Daniels and wife Jennifer of Newtown, PA; her niece, June LaFave and husband David of Chicago, IL; as well as her great-niece and nephew, Kate and Stephen Daniels. Amy loved her teddy bears, but not just any teddy bear. Each one had to "speak" to her whether it was her first bear "Pierre" or her constant companion "Augie. " Augie joined her each evening while she and Galen watched their favorite TV shows - Amy on her Lazy Girl side of the couch and Galen on his Lazy Boy side. During their recent downsizing effort before moving to Messiah Village, Amy donated (i. e. , gave away) over 75 of her beloved teddy bears. It was a difficult departure, but she knows they will each find a good home. Amy also loved sharing her home with friends. She loved hosting parties for groups whether it was a going-away party for a work colleague or a summer picnic for the local chrysanthemum club members. She especially loved opening their home for their biennial Christmas Open Houses. There were always a great mix of neighbors, work colleagues from both the community college and Galen's work, and other friends. Amy would hardly make it from the foyer as she greeted each guest coming and going. Amy's professional career started as an elementary school teacher in the Scranton area. After just a couple of years teaching, she knew that she wanted more, leading to her master's degree in Higher Education. She served as a Resident Hall director at Michigan State University for several years. In 1970, she joined the administrative staff at Shippensburg University as the Assistant Dean of Women. Good things happened at Shippensburg - mainly meeting and marrying Galen. In 1973, they moved to Northern Virginia for Galen's first career job. Amy found her way to the Alexandria Campus of the Northern Virginia Community College as Coordinator of Student Activities. Her career at NVCC concluded at the Annandale Campus as a member of the Counseling staff. While at NVCC she developed many strong and lasting friendships. Retirement for Amy meant more time to read fiction books by her favorite authors as well as watching old Westerns - Gunsmoke was her favorite. Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM Thursday, December 7 at Malpezzi Funeral Home, 8 Market Plaza Way, Mechanicsburg, where there will be a visitation from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Memorial contributions may be made to either the NOVA Foundation by directing checks to the Brault Building, 4001 Wakefield Chapel Road, Suite 252, Annandale, VA 22003, or to the Messiah Village Benevolent Fund, 100 Mt. Allen Drive, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055.

John Mangan

Fairfax Station, VA

John Jay Mangan, a distinguished figure in the realm of International Trade law, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2023, in Fairfax Station, Virginia. Born on April 29, 1941, in Mineola, New York, John was a man of faith, humor, and analytical prowess, whose dedication to his profession was exceeded only by his devotion to his faith and family. John was the cherished son of the late Leo and Clara Mangan and the beloved brother to the late Lee and Charles Mangan. His legacy lives on through his loving wife of 53 years, Carol Fox Mangan, and their five children: John J. Mangan, Jr. (Joanna), Julie Kurzweil (David), Timothy, Keith, and Cindy Golias (Chris). He was also a proud grandfather to Ashley-19, Caroline and Heather-16; John J. (Jack)-15, and Veronica-6. John's intellectual journey began at Cornell University, where he received a B. S. in Civil Engineering ('64). His thirst for knowledge and passion for justice led him to earn a law degree (Cornell '67). His education laid the foundation for a remarkable career that spanned over four decades. After graduation, John joined U. S. Steel Corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he served as the chief litigator of International Trade for 22 years. His journey continued at the law firm of Skadden, Arps in Washington, D. C. where he spent 19 years as the chief litigator of International Trade. John became a partner in 1992 and retired in 2008, leaving behind an indelible mark on the firm and the industry at large. Throughout his life, John never lost sight of his life's true loves - his faith, his family, and his affinity for the water. He was known for his analytical mind, which he employed not only in his work but also in his personal life. His sense of humor was a source of joy and comfort to those around him, and his faith-filled life was an inspiration to all. John Jay Mangan was a man of many virtues, but his greatest achievement was undoubtedly the beautiful family he built with his wife, Carol. His legacy will continue to live on through them, and he will be remembered for his unwavering faith, his sharp wit, and his devotion to his family and his profession. His passing is a great loss, but his life was a greater gift - a gift that will continue to inspire and guide those who knew him. He will be deeply missed. A visitation memorial will be held Sunday, December 3 from 2 to 6 p. m. at Fairfax Memorial Funeral Home, 9902 Braddock Road, Fairfax. VA. A memorial Mass will be held on Monday, December 4, at 10:30a. m. at St. Mary's Historic Church, 5612 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA. Donations can be made to the John J. Mangan '67 Scholarship Fund at Cornell University (https://cornel. ly/imojohnmangan) or Food for the Poor (www. FoodForthePoor. org - indicate John Mangan in the memo field).
