Joe Ledwidge Obituary, Death – We were saddened to learn about Joe Ledwidge, Fennor, and Slane’s passing not long ago, and our hearts are filled with sympathy for their families.
Joe Ledwidge, Francis Ledwidge’s only living nephew, passed away late on Saturday night at the Silverstream Nursing Home in Duleek, which is where he had resided for the past few years. Joe was the only relative of Francis Ledwidge still alive. He was the only nephew who had made it through.
We will always fondly remember the many wonderful times that we spent in Joe’s company and how he was the quintessential example of a gentleman. Those memories will live on in our hearts forever. Joe lived a life that was truly remarkable. He had an excellent memory and was a treasure trove of information, both in terms of the people who lived in the Slane area and the many events that had taken place there in years gone by. He was a treasure trove of information in both of these areas.
Joe and his late wife Phyllis were regulars at Ledwidge Day and all of the other events that took place over the course of the years. Neither of them ever missed an occasion. Joe was a very active member of the museum committee’s support group. Joe was blessed with a lovely voice, and he made good use of it by singing at a few of these gatherings while Phyllis played the accordion. Phyllis was the one who played the instrument.
This is a list of the arrangements for the funeral, which are as follows: Beginning at 3.30 in the afternoon on Tuesday, the body will be laid out in repose at St. Joseph’s Chapel of Rest in Old Johnstown, which is located in Navan C15 C425. The procession will start at 5:30 p.m., travel through Joe’s neighborhood, and arrive at St. Patrick’s Church in Slane at 6:30 p.m. on the dot. The funeral liturgy is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at 11 in the morning. After this, the funeral will proceed to the Hill of Slane cemetery for the internment of the body.
