We, the family of the late Marian Craven (née McManus) would like to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone who sympathised with us during the recent bereavement of our much loved wife, mother, sister, relative and friend. To our family, friends and neighbours, thank you for the kindness and generosity shown to us over the past weeks.
We would like to thank everyone for the mass cards, letters, flowers and donations to the Southern Area Hospice. We are most grateful.
Thank you to those who nursed and cared for Marian, especially the staff of Daisy Hill Hospital, Newry and Craigavon Area Hospital. Many thanks also to the doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and carers who provided care and support for Marian over the past two years.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Fr Gerard Tremer for his support and the beautiful funeral mass celebrating Marian’s life. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the mass and special thanks to Janice Gribben for the beautiful music and singing. Thank you to everyone who attended Marian’s funeral mass both in the church and online and apologies to those who could not attend due to Covid-19 restrictions. Thank you also to Fr Damien, Dromalane Church for Marian’s month’s mind mass which was celebrated in a very personal manner.
Our particular thanks go to McGennity Funeral Directors for the caring, professional and dignified manner in which they carried out the funeral arrangements.
As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgment as a token of our appreciation.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help and St Anthony pray for her.
