Deepest Sympathy to Vinny and the entire Donnelly family on the passing of your beloved Sisty May her gentle soul rest in peace. We all followed her beautiful funeral Mass on the Internet . We grew up in the same Ruane family home in Derrintogher Ballyhaunis Co Mayo as her dear Dad , our Uncle Bob emigrated from many years ago.Carmel Angela and Nuala Ruane

Thank you, Mrs. Donnelly, for being such a great next door neighbor and always having iced tea & pretzel rods at the ready whenever we came in from playing. Sorry for all the bad words I used, and windows I broke playing hockey in your driveway. Love and big hugs to Brad, Ryan, Glen & Chad. I'll always be prouder than you know to have grown up with you guys. Love, Chris Moriarty
Dear Vinny and family, I am so very sorry for the passing of RoseAnne. She was a such a good person and always made me laugh. Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day....unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved still missed, and very dear." I will pray for you to have strength at this difficult time. Love you always, Geegee McGowan
Dear Vinny, Those who touch our lives stay in our hearts forever. You and Rose Anne will always be in my heart, I love you both. I am so very sorry for the passing of Rose Anne. Love, Cathy Johnson

Dear Vinny, Brad, Ryan, Glen, and Chad, We are sorry to hear of RoseAnne's passing. She was a good friend and neighbor to our family for over 30 years. She kept not only her boys but our boys too in line while growing up. She could be tough and softhearted but always kind and caring with a great sense of humor. She was loved and Bea Avenue lost a great lady!
So sorry to hear about Rose Anne. She was always a shining example for me as to what a loving and caring Mother should be. God rest her beautiful soul. May you all find comfort in your wonderful memories of her. Ellen Doody

I really have no memory of ever not having an Aunt Roseanne. She was the silent conductor of the Donnelly orchestra, keeping ALL in line (especially that big one Vinny) with just a glance. Her passing is a huge loss to our entire family but especially Vinny, Brad, Ryan, Glen and Chad and their families. Rest in peace Aunt Roseanne we love you and will miss you.
Dear Chad and the Donnelly Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences Wishing you all strength and peace, Chris Caproni
