Joan Grainger

On 24th February 2020 peacefully at her home, Joan aged 96 years of Read. The dearly loved wife of the late Harry much loved and loving mum of Malcolm and the late Peter, dear mother-in-law of Joyce, also a loving grandma and great-grandma.

Joan was born in Bolton-by-Bowlans at Ghuill Bottom Farm. She attended the local school and later went on to study at Ribbledale School, this was where she met her husband to be Harry. Her parents owned and ran a Grocers shop on Branch Road, Burnley. Together Joan and Harry ran the bakery in Read and they became well known to all the locals, Joan loved to chat away to the steady footfall of customers coming through the door.. A devoted mum and grandmother, Joan always made time for family and loved nothing more than getting together for a celebration.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
