She was one of the oldest residents in the village, of which she was a native. She formerly attended services regularly at Haggate Baptist Chapel. She is survived by three sons and three daughters.
The funeral took place last Wednesday in Haggate Baptist burial ground. Mr. James Halstead, son, officiated. Floral tributes were sent by: Amy and Eric; Martha Ann, Jim and family; Jesse and family; Fanny and Arthur; Ben, Eric, and Eunice (U.S.A.); Will and Maggie; Leslie; Doreen and mother; all at 5, Queen-street; and all at 9.
