But the 53-year-old sadly passed away on Tuesday, with her sisters by her bedside.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious at this time.”

A daughter of the late Paddy and Alice Quinn, the deceased will be sadly missed by her loving sisters, Stella Mullin, Margaret Conlon, Cathy Hughes, Sharon Donnelly and Edel Mc Anallen.

She is reposing at her sister, Sharon’s home,  at 50 Milltown Road, Benburb, from today, (Thursday).

Her funeral will take place this Saturday, leaving the home at 9am and making its way to St Patrick’s Cathedral in Armagh, for Requiem Mass at 10am.
