The death took place early on Saturday 12th January 2002 in Beaumont Hospital, Dublin of Ann Margaret Trimble, Maas, Glenties. Her remains were brought home later that day and to St. Connell’s Church, Glenties on Monday morning. Fr. Prendergast assisted by Fr. Ó Gallachóir and Fr. Cuffe, Chaplin at St. Vincent’s Hospital, celebrated Requiem Mass. Her brothers and sisters did the Readings and brought the Gifts to the Altar and two cousins read Prayers of the Faithful. Burial took place in the New Cemetery. The whole community was shocked, first at the news of Ann Margaret’s sudden serious illness just a week ago and then saddened at the news of her death. She had worked as a nurse in St. Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin after finishing her training and her twenty third birthday was on Sunday 13th the day after she died. Ann Margaret was a daughter of Patsy and Margaret Trimble, Maas and is survived by her parents, four sisters and four brothers, grandmother, aunts, cousins, other relatives and friends. Her other grandmother, Mary Kennedy lived for several years at Mill Road, Glenties.
