  1. My sincere heartfelt sympathy to Bosco, Anne, all the McDermott family, and the Presentation Sisters community, on the sad passing of Sr. Mary.

    Mary, a selfless lady, always welcomed you with a smile; she always had something interesting to say. Her eyes sparkled when she spoke about her teaching career and living on Achill.

    May she rest in peace.

    Patricia, on behalf of Odie & Mickie Kelly deceased, neighbours and friends, late of Ballyroe Williamstown.

  2. Deepest sympathy to all the Tuam presentation sisters and to Marys family and friends. Lovely memories of Mary, of her humor and goodness. May she rest in joy.
