Funeral of Mrs Ellie Leckey

Friday 11 August 2017

The funeral service for Mrs Ellie Leckey will be in Bangor Abbey on Tuesday 15 August at 11.00 am followed by private cremation in Roselawn.

Ellie was wife of the late Dean of Down, the Very Revd Hamilton Leckey. In tribute, Bishop Harold said:

“Ellie was the archetypal rector’s wife, serving alongside Dean Hammie Leckey. She was a very warm and outgoing person, who continued to serve the Lord in so many ways even after Hammie’s death. 

“I will remember her leading singalongs for the Mothers’ Union indoor members, and she was well known for using her gift of music to play the organ wherever the need was, well into her eighties! The one sure thing was that no one was allowed to lag behind in the singing! 

“I had the privilege of seeing her on her recent birthday and just a few days before she passed away. We hold the family in our prayers.”

Details of the funeral have yet to be announced.
