Mrs Ivy Jones - Oct 2003 - Suicide

Post by Admin » Fri Mar 08, 2013 3:23 pm

I have a vague memory that I heard (in the last 3-4 years) that the mother of Kevin Dormer (EB priest in the BBC 2003 'Everyman' programme re the EB) had recently committed suicide (in Northern Ireland?
I believe it was Kevin Dormer's mother-in-law, Mrs Jones of Belfast, who tragically took her own life a few years ago. I had heard that her husband had found her hanged in the garage. I had the privilege of spending an evening in her company once in Warrenpoint 1999, and I thought she was a very quiet and sweet lady. I have my own opinion regarding the reasons why she committed suicide, but I would never voice it.
Her name was Ivy Jones, nee Angus. Her husband was William (Billy). Son Danny and daughter Liz, married to Kevin Dormer. Danny found his mother hanging in the garage in late 2003, probably October.

She lived at 1 Dorchester Gardens, Newtownabbey, Belfast.

I understand it was all "hushed" up.
