Pauline “Polly” McGillin, Corner House, Tattyreagh, OMAGH – 26th September 2021
The family of the late Polly McGillin (Nee McCullagh) wish to express their sincere thanks to all those who sympathised and supported us through our recent bereavement. Mummy was a widely respected, devoted and much-loved wife, mother and grandmother. Cherished sister, sister in law, aunt and friend. Mummy passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on the evening of 26th September. We as a family offer our deepest gratitude to all the medical and non- medical teams that assisted us in recent years. Without this dedicated help and support we could not have been able to provide Mummy the care in her own home. The support from “Our Carers”, Northwest Care, Night Angels, District Nursing and Marie Curie Nurses was invaluable with many individuals becoming extended family members (they know who they are) giving mum so much love and laughter in recent months. Your excellent care, professional support, warmth, and diligence will never be forgotten. A special mention to Kevin Kelly and his colleagues at Kelly’s Chemist, Omagh for the support both in and out of hours for many years.
As a family we are humbled and greatly comforted by messages of condolence, mass and sympathy
cards, phone calls, floral tributes and acts of kindness received during this difficult time from many
Our thanks also those who joined us online, especially those that travelled long distances to support
us. A special thank you to those that stood along the funeral route to pay their respects to
mummy as she made her final journey, sincere thanks to our Aunt’s Peggy and Katie, friends and
neighbours who helped out in so many ways, to help us grieve as a family.
A special word of thanks to Fr Donnelly PP (Plumbridge) for officiating Requiem Mass and supporting
the family during this difficult time. To Fr Ignacys Saniuta for attending mum and administering the
last rites, this was greatly appreciated and comforting to us all. Thanks to Shauna Poyntz and Eamon
McElholm for providing the music for the funeral, it was very fitting for mummy. Stephen and Orla
McQuaid (Omagh Printing) for providing the beautiful orders of service for the funeral mass and
Judith Kempston (Floral Temptations) for the beautiful flowers in our home, funeral spray and
church, mummy would have loved them. Joe and Shauna McCusker for assisting with the funeral
dinner, the gravedigger and Kerlin Memorials for all the support they provided us in the days prior to
mummy’s funeral preparing her final resting place. Finally, a special mention and sincere thanks to
Pat McAtee (McAtee Funeral Directors) for the respectful, caring and dignified manner in which
mummy’s funeral arrangements were conducted. As it is not possible to thank everyone
individually, we hope that this acknowledgement will be accepted as a token of our sincere
Mummy’s (Polly’s) Months Mind Mass will be celebrated in the Sacred Heart Church, OMAGH on
Tuesday 26th October 2021 at 7.30pm. The Mass may also be viewed via the Drumragh Parish
