Funeral of Mrs Dorothy Hinchliffe

Today we held a funeral service for Mrs Dorothy Hinchliffe who passed away recently after a short illness. Dorothy has been an important part of the church ever since she moved to Crosspool in 1988 and she and her daughter Linda started attending regularly. In the past few years she was unable to attend, but kept a close interest in the church’s affairs.

The church was packed with family and friends and there was a special atmosphere throughout the service. After the service Dorothy was buried at Fulwood Church, alongside her husband, Frank who died in 1995. Dorothy and Frank were married at Fulwood Church in 1947, and she regularly attended Fulwood Church before moving to Crosspool.

There was a well attended reception at the Masonic Hall on Shore Lane afterwards, where family and friends swapped warm memories and remembered Dorothy fondly. ¬†Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Dorothy’s family, particularly her children Linda and Roger.

The family were very impressed with the nursing care given to Dorothy in her last few days by the palliative care team at the Northern General Hospital, and have asked for donations in lieu of flowers to be sent to them. Cheques can be made payable to S.H.C.T John Fairest Funeral Home, 10-56 Penistone Road North, Wadsley Bridge, Sheffield S6 1LQ.
