Loving memories never die. In our hearts a memory is kept, of ones we loved and will never forget.

Peacefully at rest on Wednesday 15th April 2020 at The Royal Stoke University Hospital, Maureen aged 82 years of May Bank, the dearly loved and loving wife of Gerald, the much loved mum of Roger, Hilary and Martin, a dearly loved and treasured Nana of Charlotte and Oliver also a loving mother in law of Lisa and Kate.

Mo lived for her family, especially her grandchildren, who she loved looking after.

She always dressed smartly, she had her hair done every week even after she went into care. She also knew how to shop, she loved a bargain, that’s why she had 72 pairs of shoes!

She was an enthusiastic gardener and she and Gerald had dogs all their lives, she loved all their pets. She also loved  cakes from Chatwin’s and loved to get an assortment of cakes in a box from there.

Maureen will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all her loving family and friends.

Due to the current restrictions a private funeral service will take place at Bradwell Crematorium. A memorial service to celebrate Maureen’s life will take place later in the year. Donations in memory of Maureen would be gratefully received for ‘Approach for positive dementia support’ ( Stoke on Trent, North Staffordshire), via the funeral director.
