Sadly Laura passed away suddenly on the 3rd February in her 94th year. She had been in failing health for the last few months, but had managed to come to the Darby and Joan afternoon which she enjoyed and appreciated, so much.

With husband William, Ronald and Audrey she came to live at 4 Dalegate Cottages at the end of 1939 when Bill became shepherd at Cold Harbour Farm.

The family were active in all aspects of village life, school, sport and valued members of All Saints Church. Laura also helped Mrs Ronald Middleton at Eastfield Farm for many years. After Bill died, in the late eighties, she moved to Beverley to be near her family, but never lost touch with Bishop Burton.

Laura will be remembered with great affection by all who knew her.
