The death took place recently of Nora Ann Conway (née McDonnell) surrounded by her loving family.
The two things that were most important to Nora in life were her family and her faith. The deep love she had for her family was reflected throughout her life in the way she always cared, and made sure everyone was looked after and happy.
During her husband Tom’s final years, Nora dedicated herself to looking after him, she always ensured her children had everything they needed, and was always ready to give help to her sisters all through the years. She loved to talk of past family history and members, and always made sure their memory was kept alive by telling stories of times long ago.
Nora enjoyed the many happy times she spent with her son-in-law John in Lanmore, and was a great support to Josephine after John’s untimely passing. She was happiest when surrounded by family and showed a wonderful example of what love is.
Nora’s faith meant a lot to her and she had a great devotion to Our Lady and St Joseph. She enjoyed many times she visited Knock Shrine, and would always make sure she bought a few scapulars and medals to gift to family, friends and strangers that she met who were ill or expecting a child.
Nora was a very generous and kind hearted person who was continuously thinking of others, and set a wonderful example of what faith meant.
Nora is predeceased by her husband Tom, son-in-law John and sister Kathleen. She is deeply mourned and missed by her sons Thomas and John, daughter Josephine, sister Mary McDonnell, the Gibbons family Aughagower, Kevin and Trish Dooley, Manchester, relatives, neighbours and friends.
Month’s Mind Mass for Nora will be offered in Aughagower church on Saturday, February 26 at 8pm.
