Jean Rosalind Barton
In hospital following a short illness on 24th April, Jean aged 90 years of Hope House Nursing Home and formerly of Northamptonshire. The widow of the late William, loving and loved mum of Diane, Valerie and David, cherished grandma of Daniel, Joanne, Robin and Elizabeth, great-grandma of Calum and Ethan.
Jean started her working life as a metallurgist and later worked as a civil servant for the Ministry of Agriculture where she remained up to her retirement. Following her retirement Jean gave her time as a volunteer with Women’s Aid and also spent time as chairman at the women’s section of the Royal British Legion. Jean was always an active lady and loved to get involved with her local parish church and she was for many years Girl Guide Captain.
An avid gardener, Jean loved to spend time out in her garden, which always bloomed in full colour throughout the spring and summer months. Jean enjoyed getting away from it all and visiting the local bird hide at the reservoir to spend sometime in peace spotting the wild birds.
Jean enjoyed holidays and travelled to Canada to visit her brother and she always looked forward to getting away with her friend Jean and daughter Valerie on trips around the UK, spending time visiting various National Trust Sites.
Most of all Jean was a family lady who always looked forward to spending time with her family, and loved nothing more than a trip to Lancashire to spend time with her grandchildren.

Heartfelt sympathy to you all, Jean was a neighbour for so many years and I thought of her as a good friend she used to discuss gardening with my husband shouting over the hedge at each other about everything I’m sure you will all miss her a lot but I’m sure she knew she was loved by you all Best wishes

|Deepest sympathies to you all. Jean was a lovely lady who will be missed by all her friends and neighbours here in Northampton. ‘There are special people in our lives that never leave us even after they are gone – anon’. Thoughts are with you all during this difficult time|
