Mary Lancefield

Remembering Mary Lancefield of Stanhoe, who died on 9 July.

Mary raises her glassZita Mary Lancefield – amazing lady with an extraordinary range of interests involving so many friends. Those friends who have met Mary through teaching and schools, making glass, supporting the hard of hearing, church recording, WI, lace making, singing, swimming, fitness classes, lunching, coffee drinking, supporting Mike with beekeeping and honey making (and a whole list of other activities!) will all feel her loss keenly. Mary didn’t just turn up – she was a real roll-your-sleeves-up-and-get-involved person with strong opinions of what was going on.

Mary was strong on family – we all looked forward to the stories of the annual holidays in Lyme Regis which involved numerous members of her family. She looked forward to these trips all year and would discuss the logistics of travel and accommodation for hours. She adored all her grandchildren, following their lives and supporting as much as she could. They have the most beautiful quilts and knitwear courtesy of her busy fingers!

Mary lived the last years of her life with humour at the challenges illness and its treatment brought her. She had always had such a great sense of humour and she didn’t lose it then. Even at her worst moments she tried not to let it all get her down, but some of us saw the annoyance at moments when she couldn’t just get on with life. Such a lovely normal human reaction which would pass quickly. That’s what she was – a warm loving human being who gave time to love and listen.

R.I.P. Mary, loved and missed by so many.
