Moira E Hodgkinson 1930 -2017 Born in Wales always wanting us to be aware of her Welsh background she went to Bristol as a youngster. Always a Christian she became a captain in the Girls Brigade and trained as a nurse becoming a Sister in the maternity ward in Bristol. Married to Tony in 1953. They had two children Gareth and Liz. Both Tony and Moira enjoyed Bowls as a pastime and when they came to East Haddon in 1998 soon became involved with the Cold Ashby Bowling Club. Here in Long Buckby they quickly became Elders in our church and were deeply involved in wanting our church to move forward. Regular attenders at the Bible Study group that met at Peggy and Michael’s home. In East Haddon they will long be remembered for the paper round they did together and their involvement with East Haddon Players. After Tony’s death it was judged to be right that Moira should go to Holsworthy to be near Liz and it was a pleasure for Peggy and Michael to visit her and share news of Long Buckby every time they went to Bude. Moira’s health very much declined in the last month and her passing was very peaceful on the 4th March. After her funeral a special thanksgiving service was held at her Bristol Church on the 13th May.
