Carramore, Louisburgh, Co Mayo
Maura Beirne passed away on July 18, 2017 surrounded by her family at Abbeybreaffy Nursing Home, Castlebar. Maura was the only daughter of James and Mary B Sammon. She was educated in Louisburgh and after working in the post office in Castlerea and Drogheda returned to Louisburgh where she married and raised her family.
She was a kind and gentle person who had great faith. She never failed to attend Mass until illness began to take its toll. She battled through her illness bravely, never complaining as was her way all through her life. Maura was blessed with great neighbours whose visits were a great source of comfort to her throughout her illness.
Her passion was her family and together with her husband Frank they raised four children. She was very proud of her children and always looked forward to welcoming them and never more so than when grandchildren came along.
No grandchild ever left without some pocket money to buy something nice on the way home.
Maura is survived and is deeply missed by her husband Frank, sons Frank, James and Sean; daughter Marie, son and daughters-in-law and grandchildren.
