Mary White, R.I.P.

Bray People - - Kilmacanogue Diary -

THERE WAS great sad­ness in the Kil­macanogue area last Tues­day night when news came through that Mary White had sadly passed away.

Mary had not been well of late but her pass­ing came as a great loss to all her fam­ily. Mary was one of the Sin­nott’s of Kilped­dar be­fore a young hand­some man by the name of Gil­bert (Gill) White swept her off her feet and they were mar­ried in 1953.

They lived in Bray all their mar­ried life and had two sons, Ge­orge and Gibby. They also had a daugh­ter Liz who got in with a right crowd of girls from Kil­macanogue back in 1982 in Loreto school and Kil­macanogue is like Liz’s sec­ond home ever since.

At Mary’s fu­neral mass, which saw a huge crowd gather to pay their fi­nal re­spects, it was re­called how Mary, al­though a Pi­o­neer, made sure callers to the house got an ex­tra large mea­sure of any drink, be it tea or a short and how she loved a full house sur­rounded by fam­ily and friends.

She was de­voted to St. Fer­gal’s parish church and as well as clean­ing it ev­ery week, she wor­shiped there on a weekly ba­sis and it was lovely to hear the lo­cal choir in such fine voice as she made her fi­nal jour­ney. Her son Gibby paid a lovely trib­ute to his mother at the mass and re­called her great de­vo­tion for her fam­ily and friends (and the old horses also). She will be re­mem­bered fondly by us all in Kil­macanogue who knew her and deep­est sym­pa­thy is sent to her hus­band Gill, Sons Ge­orge and Gibby, daugh­ter Liz, her brother Peter and her Sis­ter Nel­lie, son in law Wil­lie, daugh­ter in law Teresa, grand­chil­dren Ge­orge, Luke and Tara and all the ex­tended White and Sin­nott fam­i­lies. May her soul Rest in Peace.
