Following the death of the late Maria Britton, tributes have been pouring in online for the popular lady.

Mrs. Britton was the wife of the biker Richard Britton, who died in an accident in 2005. At the time of his death, he was one of Ireland's leading motorcycle road racers.

Mrs. Britton was well known and highly-regarded in the Fermanagh area and further afield. 

Her employers and co-workers at Toytown expressed their grief in a heartfelt online tribute, saying: “We are heartbroken that we have lost our dear friend and colleague, Maria Britton.

"Maria was an incredibly bubbly and friendly member of the Toytown family here in Enniskillen, always greeting you with a smile and a cheeky giggle.

“She had an infectious character and her relationship and rapport with her team and customers was among the best.

“She was always so insistent that parents came back to introduce their new-born babies to her. She will be so dearly missed by us all.”

Toytown will host a book of condolence in Mrs. Britton's memory and will close the store in her honour on Saturday.

As well as her devotion to her job, Mrs. Britton was also recognised in other tributes for being “the most genuine lady” and a “beautiful soul”.

Many online tributes have been written by those who knew her, with the following just some of the tributes to her.

Aileen Kettyles wrote: “Heaven has gained a true angel.”

Kym Jackson said: “She was a lovely woman, always ready with that smile of hers.”

Cathy Robinson shared that Mrs. Britton was “a beautiful girl, inside and out”.

Mrs. Maria Britton will be deeply missed and mourned by her loving son Loris, sister, brothers, nieces, nephews, extended family circle and friends.

Her funeral will take place on Saturday, June 15 at St. Michael's Church, Enniskillen at 11am, followed by interment in Cross Cemetery. 

Funeral arrangements are being conducted by John McKeegan Funeral Undertaker.
