Our mother was born in xxxxx. Her parents xxxx and xxxxx came to live in England from Ireland.
She was brought up by her older siblings as her parents passed away when she was a young child.
Throughout her working life she worked hard to provide for her children. She went on to have 7 children and over 45 grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
Our mother was proud of her big family and loved family parties, dancing and singing. She was a strong woman and a survivor throughout her life and illnesses.
She had a great sense of humour and a cheeky smile for everyone.
We all have our own very special memories. She was a precious mother who was much loved and will be very sadly missed by all her family and everyone who knew her.
A part of us all went with her when God took her home. Rest in peace Mam.
We love you.
