Susan Procter (Der)

Alison and Martin, I have many fond memories from our childhood coming to visit and stay with you and your mum at Scott Street, your mum was a character, a lovely lady. RIP Kathleen x.



All my love to Alison, Martin and family on the loss of Kathleen. Your mum was already very kind to me and I’ll be sorry not to see her again and have a brew and a natter whilst she casually whips through a cryptic crossword in a way I could only dream of! Kathleen worked so hard throughout her life and it seems unfair that there was little time to enjoy retirement but I know she was very proud of her children and their achievements and of becoming a grandma in recent years. Rest in peace, Kathleen xxx


Councillor Tim OKane.

Sad to hear of Katy’s passing and condolences to Alison, Martin and the rest of the family. I always got on well with Kath and used to enjoy our chats about politics in general and Clayton-le-Moors in particular. Another straight talking Claytoner gone. RIP Kath.
