Maurice Joseph (Joe) Sinnott, 75, of Georgetown passed away April 17, 2019, at his home in Albia, Iowa, surrounded by his loving family.  Joe was born on July 30, 1943, to Catherine (O’Neill) and William A. Sinnott.  He graduated from Albia High School, class of 1961.

Joe married Connie Papich on July 11th, 1964, at St. Peter’s in Lovilia. Joe lived most of his life in Georgetown, Iowa, where he farmed the land he loved so much.  He was also a tool and die maker for John Deere in Ottumwa for 30 years. Self-proclaimed as the “Mayor of Georgetown” or as St. Patrick himself, he was always the life of the party.

Joe’s greatest joys in life were being around his family, making people laugh, tending his cattle, farming, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, supporting his kid’s sporting events, and shenanigans with Larry and Mo.  He was always up for a new adventure, whether that be taking family on a vacation somewhere new or a country music concert.  In between all of this, he found time to be a Master Gardener, coach Little League, plant a rose garden, do water aerobics or always lend a hand to someone in need.

Left to cherish his memory are his six children, Tony (Nancy) Sinnott of New Glarus, Wisconsin, Michael Sinnott of Georgetown, Daniel Sinnott of Georgetown, Stephanie (Bill) Weedman of West Des Moines, Angela Sinnott of Rota, Spain, and Philip (Abbi) Sinnott of Albia, and two Spanish sons, Javier Martinez and Jorge del Olmo, his nine grandchildren, Amanda and Marshall Sinnott, Joseph and Kyle Sinnott, Katie, Chloe, and Sophie Weedman, Jorge Gilbert, his ray of sunshine Daisy Sinnott and his sidekick Annie.  He also leaves behind his loving sisters Mary Jo (Bill) Banks, Cathy (Jim) McGinn, Margaret (Pat) Archibald, and Regina Sinnott and many adoring nieces and nephews.

In death, he rejoins his wife of 53 years, Connie, his parents, and his granddaughter, Gabriella Sinnott.

May we all remember Joe as a great guy, who enjoyed his pranks and stories. And may we all “Keep ‘er between the white lines.”

On Monday, April 22, 2019 Joe will be laid to rest in his beloved Georgetown. A Mass of Christian Burial will be at St. Patrick’s Georgetown Church at 11:00am. With Fr. Michael Volkmer C.PP.S and Fr.
