DEATH: Death of Mrs Mary Kate Lynch. It was with deep regret that we learned of the death of Mrs Mary Kate Lynch Drumhilla Arva on Monday 25th June suddenly at her home in the loving care of Jim and Ena McLoughlin in her 90th year. Predeceased by her husband Hughie in 1987 Mary Kate was a thorough lady whose warm and welcoming smile endeared her to all that had the pleasure to know her. Her passing leaves a void in the hearts and minds of everyone that knew her. Her remains were removed from her residence on Wednesday evening to the Church of Holy Family Loch Gowna and following requiem mass on Thursday morning at 11 o’clock burial took place in adjoining cemetery.
