She worked hard for us all her life, we were everything to her. Mum never forgot her roots and family in Ireland, returning to Donegal often. Mum was a loving, caring and generous person would give you her last penny and would do anything for anyone. She was curious about the natural world, loved animals and flowers and plants and she loved people. Always quick to laugh. She loved Elvis. She worked for NCR for over 25 years and she worked in bars,
offices and in a shirt mill in Ireland when she left school at 14 years of age.
