We are deeply saddened to report the death of Janet Piers, beloved and devoted wife for 42 years of Bill Piers, who passed away peacefully at the Florence Nightingale Hospice on Thursday 18th June.
Janet had a debilitating year, suffering from undiagnosed pancreatic cancer.
Her funeral, family only, will take place at Bierton Crematorium on Monday 29th June at 11.00am.
John Wilson will lead the hearse out of Stokes End at 10:15am so people can wave farewell as she starts her final journey.
Bill and Janet's daughter Sarah delivered a bonny granddaughter Emily May 12 hours after her mother passed away.
