Jude Gabriel Mackin was taken up on Angels Wings, as his mission was complete in nine short months, and was welcomed into Heaven on Sunday, September 26, 2021, by his great grandparents Mary and John Mackin, Louise and Vincent Cinquegrani, Robert Pander, George and Evelyn Hays and several great aunts and uncles. Overjoyed with the news of a new baby, and overwhelmed with sadness that he was taken so soon, Jude was born at Magee Women’s Hospital, he was the beloved son of Philip and Stephanie (Pander) Mackin; cherished brother of Jonathan, Abigail, Selena and Joseph; grandson of Jerry and Grace Mackin, Marty and Barb Pander; great grandson of Ruth Alimena “GiGi”; nephew of Amanda (Dennis) Schwartzmiller and Jered (Liz) Pander; among other extended family and many friends. Only loaned to us for a little while, he has given Glory to God and was a Beautiful Blessing to his family. Mass, for this special little one, will be celebrated on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 12 Noon at St. Joseph Church with Fr. Hicks and Fr. Ming Wei. Burial will be private at Resurrection Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations in Jude’s name to Emma’s footprints (https://emmasfootprints.com) or the Down Syndrome Association of Pittsburgh (https://www.dsapgh.org/)
