Jean Sharples

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Mrs Jean Sharples on Thurs. 26th Nov. Jean was a long standing MU member of 55 years at All Saints and Martyrs Church , Middleton. She was one of the original members when the branch was formed in the 1960s. Jean, who had just celebrated her 90th birthday a few days ago, was a very active member and nothing gave her greater pleasure than joining with other MU members at events and celebrations like The Carol Service and our celebration evenings.
