30 SEPT, 2014. Patricia Moloney SSL died peacefully on July 18 after a short illness. Her passing was swift so that the community were understandably shocked by the suddenness of her passing. Her death is deeply regretted by her St Louis family, especially the Dun Lughaidh community, Dundalk, and her nieces Patricia, Colette, and Claire, and nephews John and Anthony to whom she was deeply devoted. Her funeral Mass took place at St Joseph’s Church, Castletown, and she was buried in the St Louis plot in the adjoining cemetery. A large crowd of sisters, ex-missionaries, friends and relatives attended her funeral, including her carers and members of her prayer group.
Her niece Colette gave a beautiful appreciation of Patricia at her Requiem Mass, extracts of which can be read in Issue 34 of our monthly newsletter, Musings, along with a piece written by Miriam Brady SSL on the offertory procession, which represented Patricia’s rich and eventful life.
