Mary (Babs) Gavin


Hillside, Murrisk, Westport

The death took place on December 25, 2020 of Babs Gavin, Hillside, Murrisk. She was a kind neighbour and friend to everyone who knew her and always gave a warm welcome to visitors to her home in Murrisk. She was a hard worker and helped her family with all the farm and housework. Babs was a devout catholic, attending Mass weekly and other religious events.  She lived all her life at the foot of Croagh Patrick, attending Murrisk National School and in her teenage years she played camogie with the local club. The lure of foreign holidays and far flung places did nothing for her as she loved her native Murrisk and Westport and often walked along the shore with her late sisters Nora Reilly and Teresa Grady.
Babs was predeceased by her husband Michael and her son Michael Joe. She is sadly missed by children, Joan (Lardner), John, Austie and Chris, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and great grandchildren.
