DEATH: The death occurred at Tralee General Hospital on Wednesday, February 20 of Mrs Elizabeth Leahy of Ballycommane. Lizzie Leahy was a real lady, who made a lasting impression on all who knew her. Anyone who ever worked at her home, spoke very highly of this calm, peaceful lady, who worked hard inside and outside the home. Lizzie was very much a family oriented lady, who enjoyed all family occasions. She was a good neighbour who was interested in reading and watching TV.
She had a deep faith, the Mass and prayer were central to her life. She endured her short illness very well and passed to her eternal reward surrounded by her family.
Lizzie’s remains were removed from Roche’s Funeral Home on Thursday night to St. Patrick’s Church in Tournafulla on Friday, her requiem Mass was concelebrated by Fr O’Gorman and Fr Michael Daly. Afterwards her remains were laid to rest in the local cemetery. We say a fond farewell to a lady who lived all her life in the locality.
To her husband Danny, sons Danny and Patrick, daughters Eileen (Reidy), Alice and Betty (Kelly), daughter-in-law Veronica, sons-in-law Terence and Davy, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brother Jimmy, sisters-in-law, relatives, neighbours and friends, we extend our sincere sympathy. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a h-anam dhílis.
