Acknowledgement from the family of the late Anne Boyle (née Diamond) R.I.P.

Updated: Apr 10


The husband Harry, children Clare, Gavin and family of the late Anne Boyle R.I.P. wish to express our thanks for the support extended to us following the death of a devoted and much loved wife, mother, grand-mother, sister and aunt. We wish to thank each person who called at our home, telephoned, sent cards, floral tributes, posted messages on social media, left in food and offered prayers.

We thank Fr. Graham who concelebrated at Anne's beautiful Requiem Mass. We also wish to thank Una McGill for her remarkable musical contribution and Tom Magill and Patrick Boyle for preparing the Church. We very much appreciate the work of John O’Neill who prepared Anne's’ final resting place.

The family were touched by people who lined the route of the cortège, former midwife colleagues and Lavey GAA Underage teams who formed guards of honour, people who attended the Requiem Mass, gathered outside the Church, travelled long distances to be with us or joined via the Church Webcam. It was a great comfort. Thank you sincerely to everyone.

Our appreciation is also extended to Michael and Nicholas Gormley of J.A. Gormley Funeral Directors, Maghera for their dignified and professional funeral arrangements. We wish to thank Lavey GAC and the ladies committee who hosted Anne's funeral dinner.


Our grateful thanks are extended to the staff of Bellaghy Medical Centre, from the receptionists to the doctors, the district Nurses, and to the loyal carers who attended Anne. Your dedication and compassion during Anne’s illness will not be forgotten. Special thanks to Maurice and Staff at Bellaghy Pharmacy for their obliging service to the family at all times.

We hope this acknowledgement will be accepted by all as it would be impossible to express our appreciation individually. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for your intentions.


The Month’s Mind Mass for Anne Boyle was celebrated in St. Mary's Church Lavey on Sunday 10th April 2022 at 11am. The Mass was streamed live on the Church webcam: https://churchmedia.tv/church-of-our-lady-of-mercy
