St Mary's Centre

Sadly, Georgie Eckardt lost her long running battle with cancer and quietly slipped away on the night of October 20th.
Coming to Haddenham, from Puerto Rico, in June 1991 along with her husband, Kenny and children Robin and Philip ... we all felt that we found a real home after traveling and living in a number of different places abroad over the years.
Georgie was very active at St. Mary's Church in Haddenham for many years beginning with Sunday School then heavily involved in Prayer Ministry.
Her time was far too short, but her family have to trust in the Lord's timing. She was much loved by her family and will be greatly missed.
Georgie's funeral will be a 'Graveside Service' conducted by Rev. Trish Mander at the Aylesbury Vale Natural Burial Meadow, on November 6th. Sadly, due to COVID restrictions we have to limit attendance to family and a few close friends.
We are requesting that no flowers be sent, but if you wish to make a donation to the Florence Nightengale Hospice Charity or to Cancer Research UK in the name of Georgie that would be most kind.
