Rose Moore RIP
It was with much regret that we learned of the death of Rose Moore at the weekend. Rose was a much cherished member of the Ballinasloe Active Retirement Association and had been for many years.
She was a very pleasant lady who enjoyed the company of other members and had a smile for all. A native of Ahascragh, her husband Paddy predeceased her many years ago. She raised her beloved family of two sons, Philip and Niall, and one daughter, Rosemary, single-handedly. She was a wonderful mother who was always there for her children. As she herself would say “I was there when they needed me”.
She was gentle, kind and loving to her family and to her many friends.
She loved a game of Bridge. Her bidding was always very exact as she played by the rules and never made another player feel inadequate. She smiled whenever she lost and was quick to congratulate her opponents.
She very much appreciated all the help given to her by her good friend Angela Courcey. Rose could always rely on her friend in good and bad times.
We shared many lovely trips at home and abroad. Especially memorable was our first cruise with Rose and we have many other happy memories of her, a kind and gentle lady.
May she rest in peace.
