Jean Procter

Peacefully, in hospital, on 14 January 2021, Jean aged 86 from Clayton-le-Moors, sadly passed away.  A much loved mother of Stephen and Keith, a dear Mother-in-Law to Yvonne and Kirsty, and a devoted  grandma to Claire, Rebecca, Tara, Cameron, Stephen and Stuart.   She was also a great-grandma to AJ, Anabella, Maxwell, Erin, Phoebe, Khalen and Ameliah-Grace.  She was the dearly loved sister of Walter and David and the late Bill and Audrey, and beloved Sister-in-Law of Jeanette, Anne, Barbara and Ted, as well as a cherished Auntie and friend to many.


Jean was born in Green Haworth to the late Christopher and Nannie (Annie) Parker.  She moved  to Clayton-le-Moors to start married life to the late Bryan Procter.  Jean spent her working life in various businesses in and around Accrington, spending several years at Allspeeds as a cook.  In her early years Jean liked her family holidays around the UK and loved to spend time bringing up her two boys.  In later life, Jean became a little more adventurous with holidays around Europe, and then further afield to the United States.  In her spare time she loved to knit and sew and loved nothing more than a cup of tea and a cake with the ladies at the local knitting club.  If Jean wasn’t knitting she would often be caught watching her favourite sport, football, on TV.


Jean was an incredible lady with a lovely smile and an amazing sense of humour, who will be sadly missed by all.

My heart and prayers go out to Jean’s family and I am so very sorry for your loss! My friend Mindi and I had the pleasure of staying with Jean in her lovely house. On a visit to the U.K. Jean was so very kind and lovely and we enjoyed her company immensely! Our stay with Jean was the highlight of our trip! Tea, knitting and bingo were all highlights. We fell in love with Jean! Jean, you will forever be in my heart!
