A long time friend and supporter of OUR Cunningham Division, Rose “Betty” Smith of St. Joseph Parish passed away abruptly this past Tuesday from pneumonia. This lovely lady was 88. As you can see from the pic’s from this past St. Pat’s Day at O’Faolain’s, Betty could easily have been a Poster Lady for the Irish/AOH! She will be missed by all who knew her………….

Betty’s Wake will be this Tuesday at Adams-Green in Herndon from 12-3 pm with a Funeral on Wednesday at 11 at St. Joseph church. Our Division has sent flowers on behalf of Betty’s Irish Friends! If you can stop by and pay your respects to the Family, I know it would be appreciated at this time.

Brothers Bob Anderson and Connors, please post these pictures on your respective Division publications. Thank you!

“May the soul of the faithful departed through the mercy of GOD, rest in Peace, Amen.
