Below is a tribute from Magdalene's family:
My family and I are deeply saddened by the passing of beloved Aunty Magdalene, she was very much respected and loved not just by our family but also by her dancers and their families past and present. She loved it when her family and people from our Irish Dancing community went to visit Vancouver and she always made everybody feel so welcome. She was always interested in hearing how her family were in London and Ireland.
Magdalene danced as a child for O’Connor School in Belfast at the same tiime and same age-group as my Mum who danced for Anna McCoy, not surprising that when she grew up, she married my Mum’s brother Edmond.
We will miss her deeply, will miss her giggles and hearing her great range of Belfast expressions and stories of the past which kept us all very much amused.
Rest in peace Aunty Magdalene.
