Sad farewell as Glenlola teacher Julie Jones laid to rest
Grieving family and friends of Co Down teacher Julie Jones (nee McBrien) who died earlier this week, came together yesterday to bid her farewell.
The funeral for the mother-of-two took place at Ballycassidy House Funeral Home, Killadeas, Co Fermanagh.
Her husband Stefan was among the pallbearers as her coffin was carried from the funeral home just a few yards from the shores of lower Lough Erne. Tributes to the Glenlola Collegiate teacher were led by the Bangor school.
They said: "Julie was a popular and dedicated teacher and will be greatly missed by us all.
"We would like to convey our sincere sympathies to her family and friends and to let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers."
A book of condolence was also opened for the late Mrs Jones by a worker at the school's local Spar store.
