The shock death, aged just 60, of Paddy ‘Tuff’ Doherty in February stunned the St Johnston area.
His wife Angela, their daughters Demi and Ellie and son Jay were left numbed by his sudden passing.
As they came to terms with their loss, amid the darkness emerged a chink of light.
The first prize was drawn for the Lifford Credit Union 2021 Draw and Angela Doherty’s name was pulled from the drum.
Demi and Ellie represented their mother to collect their prize recently from Columba Browne of Browne’s Autos.
Among the others who collected prizes were Brian Mullan, €250 winner; Joe Porter, representing Oisin Porter, €500 Euro Winner; and Paddy Joe McNelis, €250 winner.
