Mamie O Connor

A beautiful person this rhyme penned in her honor
Mamie the wife of the late Eddie O Connor
She raised a large family of girls and boys that numbered eleven
If there is a hereafter her soul is in heaven

For to sing her praises one could think of many reasons
She lived by the Station Road near Millstreet Town for decades of Seasons
In life she had her good times and her times of sorrow
And sad to think for her there will not be a tomorrow

In life there are gains and in life there are losses
And it can be said of Mamie she bore her share of crosses
The mother's grief of losing children a few times did enfold her
But she died at a great age and few have lived to grow older

In the Ardsley Nursing Home in Farran County Cork she died in the depths of December
A woman that many in Duhallow will remember
Who for her community work so many befriended
Sad to learn that the life journey for her has ended

The Reaper of lives the life from everybody does sever
By Cashman's Hill in St Mary's she is at rest forever
A beautiful person this rhyme penned in her honor
Mamie the wife of the late Eddie O Connor.
