  • A lovely person so glad we got to meet her. Deepest condolences to Jane and all the family from the Timon/Hylands

  • Dear Jane and family
    We are so sorry for the loss of your beautiful mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Love, Bill and Jeannie

  • Sincere sympathy to Jane, Cathy, Tom, Patrick and Liam on the loss of beautiful, vibrant and funny Anna. We didn’t get to know our first cousin, Anna until 2014 but it was always a great pleasure to see her either here in Ireland when she visited, or in the US.
    She was able to fill us in on the whereabouts of other relations that we knew existed somewhere in the US but didn’t know where. She leaves a void in our lives.
