|(4/12/2016) Death of Margaret McCloy |
It is with great sadness that the Fellowship announces the death of a truly faithful friend of the Fellowship - Margaret McCloy. Margaret and her late husband Jim were invaluable helpers for many years. Jim drove the bus until he was 84 years of age and when he stopped driving he was always there helping members in and out of the bus, using the hydraulic lift and just being there to give help and advice. Were Jim was there was Margaret the best way to describe her was as "a gentle lady". She simply befriended everyone with her quiet ways and pleasant manners.
They were friends to us all but always gave special attention to PJ and William. PJ only had to phone with "PJ from Ballyclare here I need ......" and Jim and Margaret were at Chisolm Court within minutes.
She missed Jim terribly when he died a few years ago but still came to various functions. One of the last times many of us saw her was at Jean Thompson's funeral when although very frail she was determined to pay her last respects to an old friend. The picture above is of Margaret with Jean at the annual dinner in 2005.
May Margaret's gentle soul rest in peace and be reunited now with her beloved Jim.
Margaret's funeral takes place tomorrow - Monday 5 December at 1pm in First Antrim Presbyterian Church.
