Hard-working Nan loved the land and country living

ANNA 'NAN' Chambers spent her life as a hard-working woman, who gave her all for her family. Nan, who would have turned 95 in March, died in Wexford General Hospital on Thursday, after a very brief stay.

She had been in reasonably good health until reasonably, and had happily lived with her nephew John Fenlon and his wife Mary at their home in Assaly, Killinick for the last eight years. Formerly of Lochtown, Broadway, Nan was the last of a family of 12 .

She never married and dedicated a good portion of her life looking after some of her siblings at the family farm. Nan was real farm stock. She got involved in all aspects of farming, and looked after animals as well as doing other farm chores like churning butter. She was a hard worker all her life, and was a woman who loved the land and country living.

She was very well known, but she was a quiet, unassuming woman who wasn't forward. A really nice, kind woman, she loved her family and was very happy spending her final years with her nephew, John and his family. Her main hobbies in recent years were watching television and reading - which she could do, until a couple of days before her sad passing. She is survived by Jim and Mary, her other nieces and nephews, her good neighbours and her many friends.

Her funeral Mass took place on Sunday following Mass in Ballymore. Her remains were interred in Ballymore Cemetery.
