The 80-year-old, who was driving a silver Volkswagen Golf, was involved in the collision which also claimed the lives of father-of-four Patrick Rogers and his mother-in-law Mary Duffy.

26-year-old Patrick was driving a red Nissan X-Trail which was involved in a collision with another vehicle on the Dungannon Road area shortly before 3.30pm.

Patrick’s mother-in-law Mary Duffy, from Dungannon and formerly from Loughgall, was a passenger in the car along with Mr Rogers’ wife and their four children, aged five, four, three and four months.

The funeral of Patrick is to take place this Friday in Cookstown, it has been announced.

The house is requested to be strictly private.

Jennifer was the beloved wife of the late Walter Acheson and the much loved mother of Terry, James, Tracey, Wayne and Michael.

She was also a dearly loved mother-in-law, grandmother and sister, with former Strangford Ulster Unionist MP and Armagh native John Taylor – now Lord Kilclooney – among her siblings.
