Death of Ann Nugent

Death of Ann Nugent

It is with deep regret we record the untimely death of Ann Nugent, Smithfield Crescent who passed away at her home, surrounded by her family on Monday last following a short illness. Predeceased for a number of years by her husband Mick, she was a gentle and kind lady who worked with the HSE for the past twenty years doing home help in the neighbourhood. She was a very good and concerned neighbour to all. She enjoyed life and loved a game of Bingo, she was a member of the Aurora Club and enjoyed travelling on the Summer Tours. She will be greatly missed by her patients and all who knew her, but especially by her adoring family, Caroline, Gerry, James and Paul, her grandchildren, relatives and friends, to whom we extend our sincere sympathy. She reposed at her home until Funeral Mass on Thursday morning and was laid to rest in Abbeyshrule Cemetery. May she rest in Peace.
