TRIBUTES have been pouring in for Pauline Kilkenny, who was found dead by her sister at her home on the Cornacully Road between Garrison and Belcoo yesterday afternoon. Police are treating her death as murder.
A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and police have launched a major investigation.
Today Una Lilley, from Lilley’s Centra and Topaz in Enniskillen where the popular 59-year-old worked, posted a heart-felt statement on the store’s Facebook page. Ms Lilley said the entire staff were “devastated and deeply shocked” by the death of “our valued team member and friend Pauline.”
Ms Lilley said Pauline, who had worked in the shop’s deli for the past two years, was vibrant, cheerful, humorous and colourful, a caring person who loved animals and who was there for anyone who needed her.
“She honestly had the heart of a lion and the compassion of a saint,” said Ms Lilley, who added Pauline was hard working, honest and committed to her work.
Ms Lilley said her tragic death was in stark contrast to the good, caring and beautiful person Pauline was.
“She was an exceptional human being and we are going to miss her presence and her colour from our daily lives greatly,” Ms Lilly continued. “If there is a God then Pauline has a special place beside him today because she was Godlike in her approach to those who needed help.”
Ms Lilley extended their deepest sympathies to Pauline’s family and wide circle of friends.
