EILEEN KELLY (CULLEN): On the 2nd February 2013 Mohill’s oldest most respected lady Eileen Kelly died in the tender loving care of her family in her home “St Patricks” Up Main Street aged 104 years. Her death represents the departure of a great generation who we all looked up to and admired. She was predeceased by her husband John and daughter Martha RIP. Eileen was a lady of deep faith, a most loving wife mother granny auntie and loyal friend. Remembering back the years she was an active member of the community. A brilliant tennis player. A member of Mohill choir, you name it, she was always at hand, baking delicious cookies. We shall all miss that lovely smile and her hospitality. Her removal to St Patricks Church Mohill on Sunday was representative of all sections of the community who came from the four corners of Ireland to pay their final respects. Her con-celebrated mass on Monday was a celebration of Eileen’s long and fruitful life. And the beautiful singing by her granddaughter Edel Palmer together with Mohill choir added to the solemnity of this sad occasion. The readings were by her grandchildren, great grandchildren not forgetting her grandson John who took us on a trip down memories lane. Our sympathies are with her daughters, sons in law grandchildren, great gchildren, nephews, nieces and all who mourn her at this sad time. She is gone no further from us than to God. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
