Maura McKenna R.I.P. It is with sadness that we announce the death of Maura McKenna, Emy, Emyvale, which occurred peacefully at her residence surrounded by family members. Approaching her 96th birthday, Maura was in good form until very recently when health deteriorated and she passed away on the late evening of Tuesday, January 5th. May she rest in peace. Maura, nee Hoban came to the North Monaghan area from Corha, Castlebar, and worked for Mr. J.J. McGlone, the auctioneer. At a social event in Mullan she met with Mick McKenna, who was employed in Mullan Mills. They were married in 1951 and moved in to the current home at Emy in 1953. They had eight children and both she and Mick played major roles in the community life of the area. Maura had a sharp mind and was a great reader and her advice was sought by many as she was regarded as a very sensible and knowledgeable person. She was also a great home maker and loved to welcome visitors to her home. She was the Queen of Emy. She loved Irish music and indeed passed on this love of all things Irish to her children, who are all very musical. She was employed by Emyvale District Credit Union for a number of years before her retirement and was a popular and efficient member of staff. Maura has been predeceased by her husband Mick. Maura’s funeral Mass will be live streamed from St. Patrick’s Church, Corracrin, on Thursday morning at 11.00am and Burial will take place in the family plot at St. Patrick’s. The link HERE We offer our sincere sympathy to her family: Patrick, Monica, Bernie, Norah, Margaret, John, Vincent and Gerard and their families and her 20 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren and her nephews and nieces. She will be sadly missed by all her friends and neighbours and Emy Corner will never be the same but she will be missed mainly by her loving family and close friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam naofa. Due to current restrictions and HSE guidelines, Maura’s house, funeral and burial will be strictly private.
