Photograph shows Anna Craker (nee Burke) formerly of Park Road Templemore, daughter of Eileen and the late Billy Burke ( Postman) at the University of Hull graduation ceremony. Anna graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Higher Education Nursing (specialising in Adult Nursing). At present she is working as a Staff Nurse at Castle Hill Hospital, East Yorkshire, in the Cardiology Unit.
Anna is very proud of her Templemore roots. Having attended St.Sheelan’s College in her younger years, she returned to education 5 years ago as a mature student. She has been married to her husband Glen for 17 years and has two children, Lorna (15) and William (11) who are all proud of her achievements. Family members, Michael & Martin Burke (brothers) and Margaret Healy (sister), made the long journey from Templemore to attend the graduation, which made the day very special. Afterwards there was a big party, attended by all her family in Hull, East Yorkshire. Anna sends her love to her elderly mother Eileen and hopes this photograph makes her proud. She also hopes her story may provide inspiration to others who may be thinking of returning to education.
