According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "many a night," Mullaney could be found in the Harp and Fiddle with her husband, Maurice "Mo" Cohill Jr., "but she was also a lawyer whose resume ran longer than her pub's menu.

"She served on many boards, often as president, and the countless times Ms. Mullaney went beyond her official duties are what her many friends remember."
