On November 11th 2015, Ann Wall passed away after a short illness
As an individual, Ann was just that – an individual but with an infectious smile and a personality that touched and inspired all generations
We must count ourselves extremely lucky if at some time during our lives we happen to befriend a wonderful human being like Ann, whose zest for life and capacity to live life to the full was inspiring.
Ann gave of her time so willingly to people, work colleagues and friends and never expected anything in return.
Her loves included her family, credit union, hill walking, beach walking, heritage, travel, socialising, reading, writing and speaking our native language (Irish), youth work – just to mention a few.
Ann served as a Director in both East Wall and Duleek Credit Union. She also worked in the capacity of Office Supervisor in Duleek Credit Union and in more latter times worked in Slane Credit Union. She had an in-depth knowledge of credit union and a great belief and respect for the ethos and philosophy of the movement. She had a relaxed, caring and professional manner towards the members, she was conscientious and she always kept herself abreast of the latest trends and regulations around the job. Those of us who were close to her will never forget her smiley face and gentle nature. She successfully completed her Diploma in Credit Union Studies in 2008 at UCC. As a work colleague, Ann was the best. During her few years with Slane Credit Union she made a myriad of friends which is testament to the kind of individual she was.
Ann worked voluntarily for years with the Augustinian Youth Group in Drogheda, with teenage girls and boys organising weekly projects which helped the young people to explore their hidden talents and become aware of the their values and attitudes. Ann touched many hearts in this organisation and will always be remembered by that infectious smile and kind personality.
She also worked voluntarily in Duleek parish over the years with Meals on Wheels, 400 Club Draw, just to mention a few.
Our dear friend Ann has left us with some legacies:
Let’s always remember Ann, and on her behalf support her husband Tony, sons John and Anthony, step-daughters Jody and Sally.
Bródúil as a teaghlach, a hoidhreacht agus a teanga dúchais.
Suaimhneas síoraí dá h-anam.
Proud of her family, her heritage and her native language.
Rest in Peace
