Family meant everything to Mary Molloy

THE recent passing of Mary Molloy (nee: Jordan), 3 Summerhill, Enniscorthy, brought great sadness to her family, neighbours and friends.

Formerly of Pearse Road, Mary was very well known and highly regarded by everyone who knew her.

A daughter of the late Aidan and Mary-Kate Jordan, she was an only daughter and youngest of four siblings. She dearly loved her three brothers Oweney, Christy and Aidan and her fondness of them was reciprocated in kind.

Mary was pre-deceased by her late husband, John, in December, 2020, and his passing left an enormous void in her life. They were married for over 60 years and were devoted to each other. Mary loved and missed John each and every day since his passing and he was always in her thoughts.

Blessed with four children, Mary was very proud of her two sons and two daughters, Anne, Catherina, John and Anthony.

She never failed to tell them of her pride in everything they did and she was always there to support them throughout their lives.

Very much a people person, Mary loved to chat and she absolutely loved spending as much quality time as possible with her eight grandchildren.

She also loved her great-grandchildren dearly and they loved calling into her for chats and cuddles.

Very house proud, Mary loved her home and always kept it pristine. She was also guaranteed to give anyone who crossed the threshold a job but such was her endearing nature that everyone was glad to help.

Mary also loved her garden, which she was very proud of. She was always out and about sowing flowers and shrubs and she was a very familiar face in Ger Nolan’s garden centre in Marshalstown.

The high regard in which she and her family were held within the community was underlined by the messages of sympathy and support given to her family following her passing on Sunday, June 19.

Following her requiem mass in St Aidan’s Cathedral, Enniscorthy, Mary’s remains were laid to rest beside those of her beloved husband John in St Mary’s Cemetery.

May they both rest in peace.
