There she married and reared her family and she always enjoyed regular trips home to Ireland when she was able to travel. She was pre-deceased by brothers, Johnny, Tom Eddie, Patsy and Jimmy and Sister Josie.

Her funeral takes place in England. Sympathy is extended to her immediate family, her twin sister Bridie, sisters Mary and Winnie, Brother Charlie in Tubbercurry, in-laws, nephews, nieces and cousins. May she rest in peace.
