Phil Duffy (née Kelly)


Knappabeg, Westport

On Sunday, November 8, 2020, Phil Duffy, a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away at the age of 89. Phil was born on July 12, 1931 in Farnaught, Westport. She was the youngest of a family of ten. She received her education at Knappagh school before she began work in the Shirt Factory at the age of 15. She proceeded to work there until her marriage to Eddie Duffy in 1961. They raised a family of four, Martina, Eamonn, Noel and Mary.
Phil enjoyed the simple things in life, good company, good conversation, a spin in the car and catching up with much loved neighbours and friends. Phil welcomed one and all into her home at any hour of the day or night. She was a gentle, kind lady who will be sorely missed by her family and all who knew her.
Phil is predeceased by her siblings and her beloved husband Eddie. She is survived by her sons Eamonn and Noel, daughters Martina and Mary, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
May Phil’s gentle soul rest in peace.
