She was buried with a stillborn son Oliver in the churchyard of St. Molua's COI church in Magheracloone parish, Co. Monaghan.
Her husband George and her nine children left Ireland for Canada in 1885.
When in the 1960's her North American grandchildren discovered that her grave lacked a headstone they arranged through an Irish Babington seond cousin to have a headstone placed at her and Oliver's grave.
