Rosemary Prior, a great supporter, dedicated Anna Friend and keen member of our Marriott cluster, died in December 2020. She had battled several chronic conditions, but remained active and devoted in prayer until the end. We miss her.
Joyce Easton, who formerly owned and operated a local care home, was with us from our very beginning on our Steering Committee and then was a faithful visitor and Anna Friend at Marriott Lodge until her retirement 2019.
Deborah Hennessy was not only a visionary, initiator and Chair of Trustees, she was also a frequent visitor at Abbas Combe until it closed, and afterwards our pioneering Anna Friend at Whyke Lodge. She retired in 2019.
Scilla Le Pla was another of our key founders and sagely advised us both on our Steering Committee and its later incarnation, the Management Committee, until 2018.
Nicola de Lestang was initiating events and caring services at Wellington Grange for residents long before we got to know her, and later came on to our Management Committee where she gave us the benefit of her input until 2019, even while continuing to unstintingly give herself to her previous activities.
Wendy Amery was an important Anna Friend, visiting at Abbas Combe and followed up some of its residents after its closure. She retired in 2018.
