- MANNION KATHLEEN (Nee JOYCE) Fursey Road, Shantalla, Galway, who passed away peacefully on 2nd May 2013 aged 92 years. Kathleen's sons and daughters and extended family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all those who supported us on the recent sad loss of our much loved mother and Nanna. We are grateful to all those who called to the house, telephoned, attended the removal, funeral Mass and burial, all those who travelled long distances to be with us, those who sent Mass cards and messages of sympathy and to our neighbours and friends. A very special thanks to Fr Martin Reilly, Bushypark Church and Fr Tony King of Athenry for a very moving Requiem Mass in celebrating the life of Mother. Thanks to Margaret Duggan and the organist for the very lovely singing and music during the Mass. Thanks to Willie Conneely of O'Flaherty's Funeral Parlour and staff for their professionalism and sensitivity and to all those who took part in the preparation of Mother's final resting place. Sincere thanks to the palliative care team for their care and kindness to Mother during her final days. A special thanks to the public health nurses, especially to Mary Connell for her exceptional care and friendship to Mother over the years. As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as a token of our heartfelt thanks. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for your intentions. Month's Mind Mass Saturday 15th June at 11am in St Joseph's Church, Presentation Road.
