Elizabeth (Betty) Cafferkey nee Leahy,

Portroyal, Partry, Co. Mayo (February 12th, 2023).

We, the family of the late Elizabeth Cafferkey, would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the kindness and support that we have received since our mums passing. A special thank you to our extended families, to our work colleagues, our friends and our neighbours for their words of comfort and unending support. Thanks to all who travelled near and far to sympathise with us at the funeral home, to those who attended the funeral mass and burial, to those who sent mass cards, floral tributes, messages and online condolences. We have taken such comfort in the outpouring of support that we have received. 

Our thanks to the medical team on Ward A at Mayo University hospital who attended mum with such wonderful care in her final days. Our thanks to Fr. Conal Eustace who prayed with us in mums final moments. Our thanks to Fr. John Kenny for his support and his beautiful delivery of mums funeral mass. Our thanks also to Fr. Brendan McGuinness from Bekan who so kindly joined us on the evening of the removal. Thank you to Sean De Burca for the most moving music during the funeral mass. Thank you to Funeral director Eugene O’ Malley and his colleague Adrian, for their empathy and professionalism. Thank you to the grave diggers who so kindly prepared mums final resting place in Ballycroy. 

Elizabeth was a truly wonderful Mother, Nanny, Sister, Aunt and Friend and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. 

As it is impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as a token of our appreciation to all who have supported and comforted us in any way over the past few weeks. The Holy Sacrifice of the mass will be offered for your intentions. 

Elizabeths Months Mind Mass will take place on Sunday, March 12th 2023 in St. Mary’s Church, Partry at 10am.
