Florence E. “Sis” Mulholland, 78, passed away peacefully at her home, in the loving arms of her family, Saturday, June 27.Sis valued her large family more than life itself and viewed the raising of her nine children as her proudest accomplishment.  She is survived by all of her children: Sheila Mulholland and her husband, Jonathan Levin-Epstein, of Longmeadow, Mass., Daniela Mulholland of Glens Falls, Leo D.D. Mulholland, Jr. and his wife, Penny, of San Ramon, Calif., Shawn Mulholland, Maureen (Mulholland) Frasier and Maureen’s husband, James, and Timothy Mulholland, all of Whitehall, Pamela (Mulholland) DeGroff and her husband, Thomas, of Queensbury, Karen (Mulholland) Grogan and her husband, D.
