Maureen Needham – Mo

Maureen passed away peacefully 17th July (the day before her 89th birthday) at The Royal Blackburn Hospital, with her family by her side. Devoted wife of the late Bert, much loved mum of Gillian, wonderful mother in law to Gary and loving Gran to Kevin and David, Great Gran to Rhyley, Keiron, Meeya, Alyssa, Alarna and Kobe. Loving sister and sister-in-law to Tom, and Iris. Special ‘Knitting Aunty’ to Ken and Diane.

A lovely lady who adored her family and was happiest when surrounded by them. Mo’s interests included knitting, baking but most of all, she loved her bingo. A great lover of any sport, she spent many hours watching T.V. but especially enjoyed watching or listening on the radio, to her beloved Liverpool FC. Her goal celebrations no doubt heard, by the rest of the residents of Dukes Brow!

She will  be greatly missed by many and leaves a wonderful legacy of ‘thinking the best of everyone’.

Messages for the family of Maureen Needham – Mo


Diane and Bob Williams

Loving memories of my Aunty who always made me laugh, was always so cheerful and never missed an opportunity to say “love you!”. Will be missed but always remembered. Love to all the family at this sad time.


Pam Seed

Maureen will be remembered with great fondness, she was just the sweetest lady. She spoke often about her family who she adored. Maureen was the very first person to move into Dukes Brow so she was a bit of a celebrity here. Rest in peace lovely lady. We will all miss her very much.


Iris and Tom Lee

All the time I have known Mo I have never seen her anything but cheerful and happy. Tom and Mo were inseparable from childhood, through evacuation and then working together at the Chippy for over 30 years. Tom and Mo chatted every Sunday until recently. Sending all the best to the family.

Mo to Mum and Dad and always Auntie Mo to us. We always reminisce about old times and our salad Sundays every other week. Frith Beach. trifles in Tupperware and laughs playing cards – as well as the Mumbles parade. We loved the lovely lady she was and will remember her always with love xxx
