The parish community were saddened by the sudden death of
Jim’s health had been indifferent recently but his passing came as a shock. We offer our deepest sympathy to his wife, Bernadette; his children, John, Catherine, James, William, Majella, Denis, Paul, Roisin & Gerard; to all their partners; his grandchildren and his surviving brothers and sisters and the wider family circle. May the God of all consolation comfort them in their time of loss and grief.
The community gathered together to say a final goodbye to
Paddy Loftus, Red Row, Culdaff.
Paddy had a long life and until his last period of ill health he resided in The Convent, Carndonagh. We offer our sincere sympathy to his nephew Hugh and his wife Pauline and to his nieces Patricia and Sadie their families and the wider family circle. May our loving God comfort those who mourn his passing.
In the week before Christmas we had two sad funerals in our parish.
Clare Conaghan, Cruck House Carrowmore and
Margaret Chadwick, Gleneely.
Clare and her husband lived in the parish for the past six years and made it their home. Clare died after a short illness and her wishes were to be buried here. We offer our sincere sympathy to her husband Jim, and her daughters Jennifer, Judith & Gemma; and the wider family circle.
Margaret’s death at such a young age shocked the community. Margaret had lived and worked in Dublin for a number of years and it was only in the past year that her health deteriorated. We offer our deepest sympathy to her father and mother, Ken & Mary; her sister, Celine; her brothers Kenneth and Christopher and the extended family circle.
May our newly born saviour comfort those they have left behind and who mourn their passing.
