Death of Ita McKeon

The peaceful death occurred at Laurel Lodge on Friday, 9th January of Ita McKeon, Smear, Aughnacliffe, wife of the late Seamus. A native of county Meath, Ita came to Smear on her marriage to Seamus and reared a family of seven. Ita was a very good wife and mother and neighbour and was loved by all her neighbours. This was evident by the vast amount of people that attended her reposing and funeral. To her sons and daughters, sons in law, daughters in law, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brothers, sisters, sisters in law, nieces and nephews. May her gentle soul rest in peace. Sincere sympathy.
