Glenn Priestley (on behalf of Bett & the Priestley family)

June was a treasured & dear friend of Bett and feel her loss as if it were our own. June & our mother Bett shared many great memories & adventures during their lives in Blackpool (I am informed that this sometimes included them being a bit mischievous at times). We, as Bett’s children (Glenn, David, Leanne & Russ) had the pleasure of knowing June and have the fondest of memories. Our only regret is that we didn’t see her more often. Our hearts and deepest sympathy go out to the whole family & hope that we will have the chance of meeting up with family members sometime shortly after Covid 19 becomes more a substance of a memory to be forgotten, when we can better celebrate her life & re-acquaint ourselves with each other., many of whom we haven’t seen for quite some time. Thank you June for having been a part of our lives. May Heaven recognize the gain it is receiving. With fondest love to all. Glenn (On behalf of Bett & the Priestley family)
