Her excellent home care team – Chrissie, Marcella and Mairead and Christine from the Alzheimer’s Association. Thanks to all who called to our home and attended the funeral Mass and burial. We are very grateful to all who travelled long and short distances to be with us. Thanks to all who sent Mass cards, messages of condolence and telephone messages and all who forwarded donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland. A heartfelt thanks to Fr Chas Guthrie for giving Stella her final blessing and to Fr. Denis Carney for his prayers, words of comfort and numerous visits to Stella and for his beautiful homily at Stella’s final Mass. A sincere thank you to Fr. Clesham S.M.A and Fr.

Our deepest thanks are extended to the Mass servers, Eucharistic ministers, Readers, and singer all of whom contributed to the dignity and religious significance of Stella’s final Mass. A special thank you to the Pioneer Association of which Stella was a member, for providing the guard of honour at the removal from Kiltimagh Rd. Our appreciation must also be extended to Michael Durkan- Undertaker, the gravediggers, Jim Rodgers- Church and Funeral Home Caretaker, and all who contributed to the funeral arrangements. Many thanks also to our neighbours and friends, all whom contributed, prepared and provided catering and refreshments at the Funeral Home and the family home during the bereavement period.
