Edith Tarbuck

On 4th May 2020 peacefully at her home, Edith aged 83 years of Rishton. The dearly beloved wife of the late Jack, much loved mum of Roger & Michael, dear mother in law of Elaine & Derya, loving grandma of Sara & John, loving great grandma of Willow, also a dear sister of Eunice and Joyce, dear sister in law of Ted and a loved auntie.

Edith was a devoted family lady who loved her home. She was a great cook and made the best ever Christmas dinners with homemade apple sauce. Edith was a lovely, caring and warm natured lady who loved times spent with family and friends – lots of holidays and cruises to various destinations. She also loved dancing and was a member of a local walking group. She adored pottering in her garden and loved to watch the visiting birds and other wildlife. Edith always had classic FM playing in the background and enjoyed reading a good mystery or romance novel. She will be remembered for her loving and generous nature.

Edith was my neighbour for 32 years. I have enjoyed some very long chats over the garden fence about all sorts of subjects, when we should have been doing garden chores. A good conversationalist, I’ll miss putting the world to rights with her. Me and my sons are sad at her passing and our thoughts are with her family.

Christine McDermott (nee Lambert)

Dear Roger & Michael and family, I was so sorry to hear this news of Aunty Edith who was a favourite Aunt. I have many special memories of her and your dad and will cherish them always. In fact my Son Ashton is named Ashton Jack after your dad! Aunty Edith was so gentle and kind and loving and she will be sadly missed by myself and Belinda and of course, your families. I will definitely be logging in for her funeral and I send my deepest sympathy to you all. Take care and I’ll be in touch by personal email.

Dear Roger, Michael, Elaine, Derya and family. I’d like you to know that I will be with you in thought tomorrow and hope to be able to watch the live stream in my office at work.
