Nancy Jane O’Hara Mires

Nancy Jane O’Hara Mires, 91, of Coronado, passed away on Jan. 18, 2021.

She was born in Syracuse New York on April 5, 1929, and was raised there by her parents Robert and Jessie O’Hara, along with her sister Jean.

She went to St Lawrence University and received her degree in nursing from Syracuse University where she met the love of her life, Ronald Mires. They married in Syracuse in 1952 and had three sons. They traveled the country with stops in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and San Francisco before settling in Coronado in 1973.

Nancy is survived by her husband of 68 years Ronald Mires; her sons Geoff and Scott; 10 grandchildren; 7 great grandchildren, with one on the way; and countless nieces and nephews. She is now smiling down from heaven with her middle son Ronald “Chip” Mires who passed in 2016.

Nancy was a kind hearted, fun loving, quick witted, chocolate craving, beach walking, pool swimming, Cub Scout leading, big hugging, goal inspiring, Yahtzee winning, happy go lucky, Hawaii vacationing, pie baking, straight talking, ice cream sundae-ing, sun worshipping, silly sided, warm smiling, husband loving, son adoring, fun grandma-ing, friend endearing, one of a kind who’ll be deeply missed by us all.

There will be an online virtual memorial posted to on February 28. Memorial donations in lieu of flowers can be made in honor of Nancy at
