JOSEPHINE ROWLEY (FLYNN)
On the 24th May 2011 the parish of Annaduff lost one of its oldest most respected ladies when Josephine Rowley Drumcree Drumsna Mohill died in the loving care of the doctors nurses and staff at St Patrick’s Hospital Carrick on Shannon. Jodie as she was most affectionately known was a wonderful lady who had a wealth of knowledge from yesteryear, a great sense of humour whom it was always a joy to meet. A most caring and obliging neighbour and above all a loving wife mother and grannie sadly she was predeceased by her husband and grandson RIP. Remembering back the years when she was a native member of Annaduff ICA and Annaduff Legion of Mary she never missed a meeting and was an inspiration to us all. Her removal took place from the residence of her son Mel to St Mary’s Church Annaduff and was representative of all sections of the community as was the attendance at her con-celebrated Mass on Friday which was a celebration of Jodies life. Our sympathies are with her sons daughters sons in law daughters in law grandchilden and their extended families neighbours & friends. May her dear soul rest in peace.
