The Lord Make His Face To Shine Upon You

Mary was born in 1928 amongst the mountains, lakes and sea of Waterville in County Kerry- with fond memories of being able to see the sea from the front door of the family home.
From Kerry, she was to go to Dublin where she was to meet Tom , a soldier in the Irish Army, who was to be her future husband.They married in London in July 1957 , before moving to Crewe where they settled in Hungerford Terrace. Mary was to live there for 62 years – they were to have two children Eamon and Marie.

Marie was to marry Pete. Mary had grandchildren- Chris and Cathy – and a great grandson Tommy. Tommy always had a way of putting a huge smile on Mary’s face, as he reminded her of Tom. Mary was never to lose her love for Kerry- and every year she and Tom would return to the family farm. She had a love for travel – and would often talk of her holidays and cruises she took with Tom.

In August 2007, Tom died. She continued to live in Crewe with support from special neighbours and friends in particular Joan and Rose. In March 2019 she moved to Corbrook Park in Audlem. Mary was to enjoy her time at Corbrook and became a much loved member of “the Corbrook family “

Mary had a long, happy and fulfilling life, despite having to deal with many health issues. She always remained cheerful and took great comfort from her faith.Mary’s family are grateful for all the love and support that was shown to her over the years – from the Dwyer and Colgan families. In particular, her sister in law, Cecilia. Her many friends , neighbours and carers , the Parish of St Mary’s and in the last year from the staff of Corbrook Park.

As Mary would say, “God Bless You.”
