Donate in memory of
DoreenThe Donkey Sanctuary
In loving memory of Doreen Trippit who sadly passed away on 11th November 2018. Surrounded by her daughters Louise and Samantha, her brother George and nephew Iain.
Mum was born in Isleworth on the 11th December 1946 to Gladys and Thomas Stamper.
After she left school she started work as a seamstress in London. Eventually working as a Anaestesic Secretary in St Peters hospital in Chertsey till 1992.
Mum moved up to Nottingham when Louise ( eldest daughter) was promoted in her job , summer 1992. When mum tried to get a job in the local hospitals they told her she couldn't do the jobs she applied for because she was to over qualified and would be going down a paye grade. So mum decided to go to college. While mum was up here she made lots of new friends, some from college where she did degrees in book keeping and Art history. As she became older, she took on rolls within local schools as governors and class room assistant to primary and junior school children.
Mum loved to go to church (St Laurence church in Long Eaton), where she made more friends who would pop round and phone up to see her and have a cuppa. She became a part of the PCC in the church and helped out siding on a Sunday morning. She even started an under 5s Sunday school Calle sunbeams. She went to Walsingham every year with the church, she would enjoy her weekend with friends and doing what she loved most. Each year her friend Sandra would give her a sprig lavender from Walsingham lol. When it was time to come home she was always thinking about her trip there the following year.
She was a mum, grandma and great grandma. Leaving 2 daughters, 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She loved to play and get creative with her grandchildren when they were younger. She often took them to local parks for picnics and wander around feeding the animals in the parks, even feeding the squirrels smarties with Emma, Catherine, Sean and Kyle and the squirrels would come upon there hands to take the smarties which made them giggle.
In the last year of her life she had to stop doing all the things she loved as she became to breathless and frustrated. She missed her friends as she couldn't go out to church as often as she wanted. She had to rely on Louise to take her there. She moved from Romorantin Place to a Bungalow (which should of been better for her) in Sawley. She made a couple of friends there (neighbours) who would pop round to say hi and did she need anything.
We are sending her off with love and hugs on the 5th December 2018 Bramcote Crem at 3.45pm. Family flowers only, any donations are to be made to the Guide Dogs for the Blind or the Donkey Sanctuary. After the service we are going back to St Laurence Church hall for a refreshments and to swap stories of our mum, all is welcome to attend either or both.
