She will be sadly missed by all her neighbours and especially by her loving husband Seamus, daughters Ann Carmel and Teresa, sons in law, grandchildren, brother in law relatives and many friends to whom we extend our deepest sympathy. Her remains were removed from her residence on Saturday evening to the Church of Holy Family Loch Gowna and following requiem Mass on Sunday at 1.30pm burial took place in the local cemetery.
