13. Maureen HUSSEY (Mary Brigid RYAN , Malachy , Loughlin ) was born on 5 Jul 1924 in East Acton, London. She died on 19 Mar 1995 in Mount Merrion, Dublin. She was buried in Shanganagh Cemetery, Dublin.

Maureen grew up in Barnes in London. She attended school at a small French convent in Barnes and later went to the Sacred Heart Convent in Hammersmith.

By the time Maureen left school (during World War II), she had decided she wanted to be a nurse. After six months of basic training in a hospital in the Hammersmith area, she was assigned to the Navy and spent most, if not all, of her service-time at a naval base in Sherborne in Dorset.

Maureen's parents, having an Irish background, felt that their children would have a much better life if they were to settle in Ireland, so in 1947 Maureen and her sisters moved to Dublin. Within a short time, Cormac Gordon, a friend of hers whom she had first met in London when he worked in the Irish Passport Office, was back in Dublin, working in the Department of Foreign Affairs. Maureen and Cormac would later marry.

After her arrival in Dublin, Maureen began training as a medical laboratory assistant, and after qualifying, worked mainly in Trinity College and also in Dr. Steeven's Hospital. When her mother became ill, Maureen resigned from her job to care for her.

In her later years, Maureen became an active member of the Labour party; she also devoted more time to writing, a passion of hers since childhood. After her death, family members published two books of her work: a collection of poetry, 'The Tug of the Undertow', and a collection of prose and poetry, 'Into the Wind'.

Maureen married Cormac GORDON, son of Cormac GORDON and Mary MORAHAN, on 4 Sep 1951 in Dundrum, Dublin. Cormac was born on 20 May 1921 in Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. He died on 8 Nov 2009 in Leopardstown, Dublin. He was buried on 11 Nov 2009 in Shanganagh Cemetery, Dublin.

Cormac received his secondary school education at Blackrock College in Dublin, where he was a boarder. After leaving school, he joined the army and was stationed in Athlone, Co. Westmeath during 'The Emergency' (as the situation in Ireland was known during World War II). After the war, Cormac joined the civil service and was posted to the Irish Passport Office at the Irish embassy in London. While in London he met his future wife, Maureen Hussey, through Maureen's sister Sheila, who also worked at the Passport Office. Around 1948 he returned to Dublin to work in the Department of Foreign Affairs, by which time Maureen had moved to Dublin from London with her sisters. He later moved to the Department of Labour where he spent the rest of his career, mainly as a negotiator in industrial disputes.

Cormac and Maureen lived for over 40 years at 56 South Avenue, Mount Merrion, Co. Dublin. In 2001, six years after Maureen's death, Cormac moved to a smaller home in Shankill, Co. Dublin.

Note: Cormac's birth date is registered as August 1921; it is actually 20 May 1921.

Una attended school at a small French convent in Barnes in London, later transferring to the Sacred Heart Convent in Hammersmith. When Una and her sister  Maureen first moved to Dublin in 1947, Michael Roantree, a Dubliner whom the Husseys knew in London, asked members of his family to show them around. And that was how Una met her future husband, Michael's younger brother Tom - their first meeting was on a tour bus going to Glendalough, Co. Wicklow.

After her move to Ireland, Una began studies at the National College of Art. However, her mother became ill shortly afterwards and Una left college to help care for her. She never returned to her art course.

Una married Thomas (Tom) Eamon ROANTREE, son of Thomas ROANTREE and Mary BYRNE, in Sep 1957 in Mount Merrion, Co. Dublin. Thomas was born in 1921 in Dublin. He died on 8 Aug 1979 in Dublin. He was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin.
