MAUREEN STAPLETON RIP

News of Maureen Stapleton's death this week brought back wonderful memories to those of us who knew her for many years.   She was a Member of Skerries Bridge Club for almost 50 years and became an Honorary Member when we celebrated her 90th Brithday.   She loved bridge and golf and excelled at both, she was a great character and was sadly missed when she stopped playing,  she will be remembered by all.    May she rest in peace.

Arrangemets:  Reposing at Fitzgerlad's Funeral home 5-7 pm Friday, Mass 10.00 am Saturday followed by burial in Whiterstown Cemetery, Rush.
