Sadly we record the death of Mrs Bernadette Kelly, McHugh Park, Kenagh, which occurred at her residence on the morning of January 1st 2014. She was formerly Bernadette Kelly of Abbeyderg and was predeceased by her husband Tom Kelly. Bernadette was in her late eighties and enjoyed good health until recently when her age began to show it’s effect. She was a very well known and popular lady who lived all her life in her native Abbeyderg and later at McHugh Park. She was one of a large family and the mother of a big family also. A very devoted mother, sister and grandmother to all her grandchildren, most of whom lived in the immediate locality. She was a good home maker and devoted wife to her late husband Tom who predeceased her by a long number of years. She was removed to Saint Joseph’s hospital chapel where her funeral mass was celebrated by Father Tom Barden on Friday January 3rd. Her waking at St Josephs and her funeral mass was attended by a very large crowd of relatives friends neighbours along with her immediate and extended family. We offer sincere sympathy to her grieving family, grandchildren , brothers, sisters , relatives, friends and neighbours. May she rest in peace.
