Hi Cecelia. I didn't find an obituary but I did find a funeral notice in The Syracuse Herald, 1920 (date illegible). Hope there's something that can help you.

George T. Egan Funeral.
Funeral services for George T. Egan
took place at the family home, 105
Daisy street Tuesday at 9:30 A.M. and
a half hour later in the Cathedral of
the Immaculate Conception where high
mass of requiem was celebrated by the
Rev. John J. McCreary. The bearers
were: Charles, Frank, Bernard and
Thomas Egan, Thomas Mansfield and
Richard Casey. Burial was in
St. Agnes Cemetery.

I found a few other tidbits too:

October 1, 1911


Syracuse Girl Now a Nun in
Order of Presentation.

Syracusans Attend Services When
Popular Thirteenth Ward Girl
Becomes Sister Mary Angela—Gets
Black Veil in Two Years.

A number of Syracusans returned
yesterday from St. Colman's Presentation convent, Watervillet, where they
witnessed the ceremony which transformed Miss Florence A.Egan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George T. Egan
of No. 105 Daisy street, into Sister
Mary Angela of the Order of Presentation Nuns.
Miss Egan, who was one of the pret-
tiest and most popular girls in the
Thirteenth ward, left home last spring
to enter upon her novitiate. Her par-
ents and brothers at first entreated
her not to give up her home and the
world to retire into the life of the
cloister, for they had planned for her
a happy future such as that to which
most girls of her age look forward with
delight But, although deeply grieved
to resist their pleadings, the young
woman refused to give up the career
for which she believed that she had a
vocation and after her family saw how
deeply her heart was set on it, they
gave their consent and their blessing.
After a novitiate of two years the
Syracuse girl, who has renounced the
world and all that it holds dear for the
life of prayer and contemplation, will
receive the black veil and make profession.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rt, Rev. Mgr. Swift, vicar general, assisted by the Rev. J. Slattery. the Rev. Robert Reilly and the Rev. F. J. McMahon. The sermon on "The Religious
Life" was preached by Father Reilly.
Among the Syracusans who attended
the services were Mr. and Mrs. George
T. Egan, Mr. and Mrs. Frank L.
Woods, Miss Alicia L. Daley, Miss
Anna M. Egan, Miss Mary Woods,
Miss Helen Murray and Miss Eva Murphy.

July 26, 1902
