Mary DobsonLifelong member of Rishton Parish Church
Peacefully on the 24th August, with family by her side, Mary aged 97 years passed away. The devoted wife of the late William Sidney, the beloved mother of Alan, Raymond, Eileen and Stephen, and much loved grandma and great grandma.
Born in Rishton to Samuel and Rebecca, and sister of Sally, Mary started her working life as an office clerk at the Co-op and later worked in the insurance business. She completed her working career at Counsell and Woan floorcoverings in Blackburn before her retirement.
Mary was a lifelong member of Rishton Parish Church. She was an active member and enjoyed making her jams and lemon curd for the church stalls. An avid reader, Mary was very intelligent and a strong minded and independent lady who was always thinking about others. She was an amazing cook and her family always looked forward to her delicious home-made food and family gatherings. Mary was a devoted grandma who gave all her time to her grandchildren and loved to spoil them.
Family flowers only please.
