Mrs Josie Thomas 1926-2016 RIP
The congregation were shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Josie Thomas. Josie and David were long time worshippers at St Mary’s where Josie sang in the choir.
Josie and David’s daughter Val gave a wonderfully warm tribute to her mother at her funeral service on 11th March which saw the church filled with family and friends all wanting to celebrate and give thanks for her life. You can read Val’s tribute here.
Josie and David, both teachers, met whilst they were at Colney Heath School and married in 1953. Alongside her teaching Josie had a huge range of hobbies and, until recently, enjoyed travelling, going pretty much around the world visiting different continents and cruising seas and rivers in style.
We send our deepest sympathy to David, Val, Chris and Howard and their families and remember Josie fondly for her warm smile and a life well lived.
Patricia, Viscountess Trenchard 1926-2016 RIP
It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Lady Trenchard.
A regular worshipper at St Mary’s for many, many years, Lady ‘T’, as she was affectionately known, was a familiar and popular figure both in Welham Green and Brookmans Park.
Latterly, as the years went by, Patricia attended Evensong where she enjoyed the peace and tranquillity and took great pleasure in the music. Until recently Lady ‘T’ hosted the Women’s Fellowship Annual Tea Party in her garden at Abdale House.
A moving Thanksgiving Service was held on 11th February attended by her family and her many friends whose lives she had touched and those who had cared for her in her final years. The service was testament to her varied and interesting life and showed us her sense of fun and adventure together with her deep humanity, fellowship and kindness. The service was conducted by the Rev Sally Davenport, a former vicar of St Mary’s.
We send our deepest sympathy to Patricia’s sons Hugh and John and their families, remembering with thanks a lovely lady who will be greatly missed.
In November 2009 she was interviewed by Olivia Ruben for the Parish Magazine. The fascinating article can be read here.
