Sammie-Jo Forde Biography
Who was Sammie-Jo Forde?
Sammie-Jo Forde, 32, died at Ulster Hospital near Belfast last Saturday, just 11 days after her mother, 55-year-old Heather Maddern, passed away in the same ward on August 31.
Miss Forde’s father, Kevin McAllister, said it will “ haunt me for the rest of my life ” that her daughter has not received the vaccine, adding that she leaves behind four children.
Both Miss Forde and Miss Maddern, who were only two beds from each other in the hospital, were care workers who cared for the elderly in their own homes.
Miss Forde, who had no underlying health problems, had been texting her father while she was being treated at the hospital saying, ‘Dad, Mom passed away.’
McAllister, who also has two children, said he did not understand why neither his daughter nor Maddern, who is his ex, decided not to receive the jab.
