Winnie Seery (née Davitt) Deceased

The recent death occurred after a short illness of Winnie Seery (née Davitt), late of Kilcummin, Cloonacool. In her late 80’s, Winnie was active until recent times and enjoyed her walk from home back to Cloonacool village for Mass or Shopping. Pre-deceased by her husband Tom in 1971, Winnie was always on hand to help out with the farming operations of her late husband, and subsequently by her son Michael and brother Mike. Never a woman that travelled much, she was always content in her home patch of Cloonacool.

Her remains reposed at the Morahan funeral home prior to removal to St. Michael’s Church, Cloonacool. Burial took place in Cloonacool Cemetery. Winnie is survived by her daughter Eileen Brennan, Mullinabreena, sons Michael and Martin, son-in-law Nathy, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister Rita (USA), relatives and friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May she Rest in Peace.
