Sadly this week, we record the death of Mrs Margaret 'Peggy' Nolan (née Farrell) of Donnacurry, Ballymahon which occurred at Mullingar General Hospital on December 27, after a short illness.
Peggy was in her eighty-third year and had enjoyed relatively good health until her final illness. She was a very good, loving woman; hard-working, devoted to her late husband, Tony, and her large family of eight children.
She was a good religious lady, faithful to her church and the broader community, among whom she lived all her life. She had a quiet disposition, lived locally, where she enjoyed the friendship of her neighbours. She was a dedicated mother to her sons, Declan, Tom, Tony, Peter, Sean, Martin and Seamus and her late daughter, Maureen Collopy.
Sadly, the Nolan family suffered a double bereavement over the past month with the death of Peggy's only daughter, Maureen Collopy, which occurred after a short but fatal illness, an event which must have had an effect on Peggy.
We offer our sincere sympathy to her grieving family, daughters-in-law, son-in-law, grandchildren and all her extended family and neighbours.
She was interred in Kilcommock Cemetery on December 29, after funeral Mass in St Dominic's Church.
