'Joan was a fantastic person'
FAMILY and friends have been paying tribute to Joan Connor (67) from College Rise, who died after a car accident near Newry on Saturday.
Joan was a highly respected member of the community and neighbours were shocked to learn of her death.
Described as a woman 'who was always smiling', she was a great worker with the Augustinians. Former prior Fr Iggy O'Donovan said: 'She was a fantastic person, a beautiful person with a great sense of humour. Joan and the other volunteers who helped run the Penny Bank helped keep the Augustinian going. We are forever grateful to them.'
