Sorrowful passing of a former Dungannon lady Mary McCullagh

She’d been Mary McCullagh, loving wife and mother living in Donaghmore’s Ivybank estate for over four decades, but to me she was always Mary Donaghy from Dungannon’s Ann Street.

Quiet and inoffensive in the extreme, the 68 year old loving wife of Patrick and mother of Frances was a modest woman with a positive and always happy-go-lucky outlook on life and I never met her, whether it was just for a momentary word of greeting or a short conversation, without me moving on feeling all the better for the exchange.

To her husband, daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren, her surviving brothers Eugene, Sean and Stevie-Joe, and the extended McCullagh and Donaghy families, I extend my sincere sympathy on a great loss. Mary’s Requiem Mass and burial were in St.Patrick’s, Donaghmore last Monday.
