THE death has taken place of a popular carer in the Teemore, Kinawley and Derrylin community.
Known for her caring and generous nature Teresa Curry, (Tiesy), of Aughintra died aged 84 years.
After receiving her early education at Swanlinbar National School she began her career at Blakes of Derrylin where she was employed in all their branches.
She married Thomas Curry of Aughintra in St Naile’s Church, Kinawley at a double wedding along with her sister Jean in 1956.
The couple moved to Birmingham after their marriage and five of their seven children were born there.
In 1964 the family moved back to Fermanagh and when the children were a little older Teresa secured a job in the doctor’s surgery in Derrylin and subsequently worked as a home help and carer around Teemore.
Her calm, caring and generous nature was ideally suited to her work.
She also worked in Mac’s shop in Teemore.
During her spare time she enjoyed bingo with friends and spent many happy days in Bundoran.
She had a strong and active faith and, combined with her love for travel, visited places such as Knock Shrine,
Lourdes, Fatima, The Holy Land and Medjugorje.
But she enjoyed most being at home with her husband Tom and family, her pet Jack Russell and cat.
Teresa is survived by her seven children, Mary, Bernadette, Ursula, Carmel, Thomas, Sheila, Tish and Mark as well as her brother Peter and her sister Catherine Brennan (Vincent) of Kinawley.
She was predeceased by her husband Tom who passed away in May 2017 and prior to that her sister Jean and brother James.
She also leaves 16 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren
