O’Shannessey-Allen Gail Roma

Sadly on Monday 20 August 2018 our much-loved Mum went in search of her own very special star – her zest for life and sense of humour was never far away even in these last tough months.  Mums love for us was so powerful until the end not wanting to leave her family.  We will all keep her safe in our hearts forever.  From her much loved babies – Sharne, Melissa, Brendan, and Emma-Sue, soul mate and loved companion of Chris Lamplough, her treasured grandchildren Josh, Balin, Jack and Isabella, best mother-in-law ever to Ron and Tony, beloved eldest daughter of the late Roma and Ron O’Shannessey, treasured sister of Sharyn and Dorne, best friend of Patti.  Rest easy mum xxx.
