Anna, a committed and devoted member of Carnmoney Parish Church, died peacefully in the Northern Ireland Hospice on Sunday 22nd November. A funeral service was held for her in church on Thursday 26th November, followed by her burial in Carnmoney Cemetery. Anna was born and brought up in Belfast, living for some years on the Shore Road and attending Belfast High School. As an adult she moved to London to work. She married and moved to Jamaica, but unfortunately the marriage didn’t last and she returned to London before moving back to Glengormley to be close to her family, where she began working for the Sports Council. A woman of many interests, gifts and talents, she had a great passion for life, playing the piano, dancing, playing golf (she was lady captain at Cliftonville Golf Club), and bridge. She was also a gifted artist and enjoyed gardening and travelling. She was always very sociable and had many friends, both through her interests and also her life at Carnmoney Parish Church, where she was president of the Mothers’ Union for many years. In 1989 she met her partner, Des, through a dancing class; he used to joke that she made him look like a dancer and she very quickly became part of Des’ family. Our prayers go out to him at this time, as well as her siblings Richard and Joselyn.
