Sincere condolences to the Forde family on the passing of Kathleen, fond memories of a warm welcome to her home in 1986 and later 1994 with Gerry and Luke(son). And a lovely catch up in London with our cousins when Kathleen made her trip to Ireland. She was strong forthright lady who worked hard for her family whom she was immensly proud of.
May she rest in peace. X

Sincerest condolences to all family and friends. I have fond memories of Mum (Deborah Johnston nee Forde) sharing netball stories and shinnaggins around her and Aunty Kathleen. I remember and am grateful to both her and Pat during family visits when I was wee. A truly beautifu gracious woman. Love to family at this time.
