We are saddened to report the demise of Maureen Green who passed away on Tuesday 23rd June, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
She has lived in Stockwell Furlong since the 1960s with her husband Graham.
They brought up their two boys, Jeff & Steve, there.
Maureen and Graham were among a very active group of local residents who comprised the original Haddenham Health Supporters' Group back in the 1980s and 90s.
More recently Maureen was part of the U3A. She also attended Aston Sanford church, which is where she wants her ashes to be buried and her family hope to do this in a memorial service next year.
Maureen attended most of the village fairs and for the last two years she allowed the grandkids to put a scarecrow in the garden.
Maureen's funeral will take place on Friday 3rd July at 10.30am but, due to Covid restrictions, this is for family/close friends by invitation only.
She will be leaving Stockwell Furlong at 10.00am if anyone would like to say goodbye.
Family flowers only, but donations (if desired) will be split between Florence Nightingale Hospice & Pancreatic Cancer UK, c/o F. J. Wilson
A memorial will take place to remember Maureen next year when all her friends are welcome to attend
