A memorial service for the late Jackie Brown was held in a packed out St Mary and St Lawrence Church on Friday 17 November, with Father Bill Godfrey officiating.
Jackie Brown, 17 August 1946 – 27 October 2017
Thanks to Ian and the Brown family the retiring collection was in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church’ appeal. The marvellous sum of £1100 was raised which is a great tribute to the love and affection for Jackie held by her family and friends and from all in the dale.
