In Memoriam

Dawn Vera Chandler 1945- 2016 A celebration of Dawn’s life took place at Long Buckby church, following a service of committal at Rainsbrook, on December 21st 2016.   A talented and creative, highly organised woman, Dawn’s life plan had been to become involved with Hansard or court reporting. She attended night school to gain the qualifications she needed; but at a fancy dress Halloween party at the Baptist Youth Club, she met Norman and her career took a new turn. Dawn married Norman in 1966 and spent her young married life as a fun and gifted homemaker and mother. Dawn was a Cordon Bleu trained cook and became a valued PA to several demanding well-known bosses. Her creativity blossomed into painting and flower-arranging after retirement. She also was ordained as an Elder and served as a very efficient Church Secretary. Had the car accident not reduced her lung capacity and curtailed her movement, we might have seen her developing more artistic talent. Dawn was a generous, kind- hearted woman with a strong faith, who was loved and respected within the church family. Her children Alexia and James and their families Rob, Rhiannon and Tilly; Nathalie, Maxion, Oceane and Celeste were all able to attend the services with Norman. We pray that they will continue to support each other in the days and months ahead. Dawn’s ashes will be buried in our grounds at the end of February.
