Marion Smith

Peacefully at Church View Nursing Home on 3rd December 2018 surrounded by her loving family, Marion aged 95 years, formerly of Rishton.  The devoted wife of the late Jimmy and much loved mum of Sheila, Richard and Judith, dear mother-in-law of John, Kathleen and Victor, cherished grandma of Hazel, John, Ann-Marie, Michael, Kerrie, Jason and Jenny, dear great-grandma and loved sister of Jack and the late Harry.

Marion started her working life in the paper making factory at Brownhill and later worked as a welfare assistant at St Peter and St Paul’s school.  Marion also ran Sheerbrook poultry farm with her family and that is where all her children were brought up.  A regular church goer, Marion was a lifelong member of Rishton Parish Church since the 1950’s.

Marion was a family lady who loved having her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren around her. She particularly loved her family holidays abroad, especially to Spain where she would enjoy the sunshine.  Llandudno was also one of her favourite places to visit.

Donations may be made in memory of Marion to St Peter & St Paul’s Church, Rishton and Cancer Research UK.
