Consultation #5 with Dr Ben Wood — Harold Macmillan and the Making of Christian Democracy

Remembering Marjorie Middlecoat

Another of our faithful elders has passed away. Marjorie Middlecoat died on the evening of Saturday, September 4. Her last words to her daughter, Linda Hawes, were:

All are welcome to attend the funeral service, which will be on Friday, October 8 at 2.00pm at:
St Andrew’s Church, 4 Church Road, Great Cornard, Sudbury, C10 0EL.

Those of us who knew Marjorie will enjoy a chance to re-visit this write-up about her from the December 2012 issue of the parish newsletter. Those of us who know her only by fame as a former bright light at St Barnabas give thanks for all she did to build the community that is now ours.
