An era that spanned two centuries ended this week following the death on Monday of one of Donegal’s eldest citizens, 107 year old Katie McMenamin (née O’Connor) of the Brae, Rathmullan.

Rich in anecdotes from a past that embraced both World Wars, the sinking of the Titanic, and other momentous events from the 20th century, she was blessed with a personality that won her countless friends and admirers.

Requiem Mass will be held Wednesday at 12 noon in St Joseph’s Church, with interrment afterwards in the adjoining ceremony.

Katie is survived by her son, Eugene; daughters Mary (Bowden) and Nora (Morris), grandchildren, and other relatives and friends to whom sincerest sympathy is extended.
