Georgina Alberta Coulter Quinton
Birth: 1915
Death: Nov. 8, 1987

WRAF Veteran.

Wife of George Quinton. Mother to 4. Member of the Church of Ireland and regular parishioner at the Garvary Parish Church (Holy Trinity). She was a native of Inver, Co. Donegal, an area where many Protestants such as her family had remained after partition.

She had for many years been a nurse at Erne Hospital in Enniskillen and at County Hospital, where she was fondly remembered. She was known to be of generous spirit, with much faith and caring and also full of fun. During WWII, she served in the nursing corps of the WRAF in Italy, the former Yugoslavia and in North Africa, and each year, she proudly wore her WRAF medals to the Remembrance Ceremony in Enniskillen.

Alberta was one of the 11 killed in the 1987 IRA bombing of the Remembrance Ceremony. Most of the dead were elderly, and included three elderly couples. An additional victim died after several years in a coma, bringing the total to 12. 63 were injured. The shock was compounded by the fact that Enniskillen had largely been devoid of many of the sectarian tensions and paramilitary activity that had characterised certain areas of the North in the Troubles. Catholics and Protestants in the town, but also across Northern Ireland and the entire island, joined in condemning the atrocity of the Poppy Day Bombing.

Alberta's funeral was held in the Garvary Parish Church and her burial is in the adjoining cemetery (Garvary Parish Church graveyard, Garvary, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. Northern Ireland). She was`predeceased by her husband George (d. 1984).
