My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Roisin. It was lovely to know her and share a chuckle over some trivial thing whenever we would meet in town. Her appreciation for music and pride in her grandchildren featured in every conversation we had in recent years. A hardworking lady who was not shy to give an honest opinion. I admired her very much for that and for raising three of the finest men I have had the privilege to know. I have only just got the news and I miss her already.

Happy memories of my loving sister and friend. We shared over 67 yrs together. Fond thoughts of time spent together in Belfast and Cobourg. Its consoling to see so many lovely messages from those who knew Roisin. Especially nice to read Siobhan and Estelle's memories as we met when I first visited Coboug. Love and condolences to my nephew's, CHRIS, JOHN and PAUL. Your mum lives on in you as she does in Gracie and Charlie. "She is handsome, she is pretty. She is the belle of Belfast city." That's my sis! Much love and may you rest in peace. Xxxx

Nancy Turpin - November 12, 2021

Dear Chris, John, Paul & family I’m so very sorry to hear about your Mom. I’ve been thinking about all the fun times we had when we were neighbours. We would always joke together about “my three sons” since we both did. Your Mom could always make me laugh. My favourite memory is making snow angels one very snowy winter night. Good times. Gracie and Charlie: Neve & Decker are very sad for you that your Gramma is gone. We are all thinking of you. The Turpin’s

Estelle Cortesis - November 10, 2021

My sincere condolences to Christopher, John, Paul and family. I met your mom when she and you our dad first emigrated from Ireland. She always reminded me about the horrible haircut I gave her… it was so bad she missed mass that Sunday. She was so forgiving and we’d shared a lot of fun times. Roisin was so proud of you three amazing sons and grandchildren and would always share her bragging rights with me. She loved you so very much. May your precious memories bring comfort to your hearts during this sad time. With sincere condolences, Estelle
