Kath­leen (92) will be missed by all who knew her

Wexford People - - NEWS OBITUARIES -

THE SAD pass­ing of Wex­ford na­tive Kath­leen Walsh oc­curred re­cently in Lon­don.

Kath­leen (92) was a mem­ber of the Lon­don Wex­ford As­so­ci­a­tion, an or­gan­i­sa­tion that her late hus­band Jack Walsh was a founder mem­ber of in 1954. She was al­ways happy, full of life and char­ac­ter, and loved to visit and rem­i­nisce about her home town of

Wex­ford.

She was the mother of six chil­dren: Jim, Mary,

Elsie, John, Robert and Kath­leen.

She had ten grand­chil­dren, eight great-grand­chil­dren, and also had two sis­ters Mary and Doreen.

Ev­ery­one who knew Kath­leen would have their own story to tell about her as she left an im­print on the hearts of ev­ery­one she met, even if it was just a first meet­ing.

She al­ways took the lead role in book­ing hol­i­days to sur­prise her fam­ily, whom she loved and cher­ished.

When she de­cided to do some­thing, she would al­ways see it through.

In 2015, Kath­leen was made an Hon­orary Pres­i­dent of the Lon­don Wex­ford As­so­ci­a­tion. She in­sisted that her award be placed in pride of place back in the county hall in Wex­ford for ev­ery­one to know the his­tory of the as­so­ci­a­tion and the in­volve­ment of the Walsh fam­ily.

Kath­leen will be sorely missed by her fam­ily and friends, all at the Lon­don Wex­ford As­so­ci­a­tion, and all who had the priv­i­lege of know­ing her.
