Death in Cullybackey
Yesterday (17th February) Elsie McIlhagga (nee Johnston) passed away. Elsie would have been 97 next month. She was the dearly loved wife of the late William McIlhagga of Ballyweaney. He was the son of Robert Dunlop McIlhagga and Annie Thomson. William died in 1975 and his twin brother John in 1979. William and Elsie had three children, Irene and twins Florence and Maurice. I heard this news from Mary in Australia, a niece of William's. She pointed me to the full notice in PassedAway.com which also names Elsie as much-loved mother-in-law of Albert and Barbara and dear grandmother and great-grandmother. A service is to take place on Tuesday (tomorrow) at 1pm in D.J.M. Robinson & Son Funeral Home, Cloughmills, followed by interment in The Family Burying Ground, Clough. Donations in lieu of flowers have been requested to The Alzheimer Society c/o the Funeral Directors, 121 Culcrum Road, Coughmills, BT44 9DT.
