Ballymena Times

I recently searched the archives of the newspaper The Ballymena Times for any clan Births, Marriages or Deaths and came up with just two items. The first I have published earlier in an abbreviated form, but the second I have not referred to before. I'm afraid I do not know the families to which the two McIlhaggas referred to belong, and any information about this would be gratefully received. Here are the two death notices as they appeared in the newspaper:

KERR — (nee McIlhagga). August 15, 2010, at hospital, Jennifer Carol, late of 3 Sperrin Heights, Portglenone. Beloved wife of Andrew, devoted mother of Kirstie, Justin, Penny and Chloe, mother-in-law of Paul and Noel, loving grandmother of Oliver and Erin. Friends welcome at the home of her daughter and son-in-law Penny and Paul Hampshire, 26 Hiltonstown Road, Portglenone. Family flowers only please. Donations in lieu, if desired, may be sent to James Henry Funeral Services, 100 Broughshane Street, Ballymena for N.I. Hospice Care. Lovingly remembered by her sorrowing Husband, Family, sister Anne and brother-in-law Sammy, brother Alan and sister-in-law Heather and Family Circle. "Greatly loved and now greatly missed."
SUTTERS — October 2, 2009 (suddenly), John Parker (Jack), late of 6 Mount Street, Ballymena, much loved husband of the late Annie and devoted father of Dawn, Jacqueline, Alan and Shane.

Lovingly remembered by his sorrowing Daughters, Sons, sons-in-law Paul and Barry, grandchildren Jamie, Naomi, Lauren, Ryan, Christopher and Sophie, sisters Maureen (McQuiston), Eleanor (McIlhagga) and Family Circle. “The Lord is my Shepherd.”
