Tess was predeceased by her husband Pat Joe Reynolds former Fine Gael TD, Minister of state and Cathaoirleach of Seanad Eireann. Tess was a lady with many qualities. Her great faith and love for her family together with her involvement in the community where she was always held in the highest esteem was evident in the thousands who came to pay their final respects at her home and concelebrated mass in St Patricks Church Ballinamore which was a celebration of Tess’s life and her great love of music. Our sympathies are with her sons Gerard Peter daughters Ita Regina, brother sons in law, daughters in law grandchildren sister in law, nephews nieces and family circle who mourn her at this sad time. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
