In loving memory of the late Kathleen Wright who passed away peacefully on 16th March 2015 at The Meadows Care Home, Alfreton, aged 90.

Kathleen was born in Danesmoor, Derbyshire, one of six children. She left school at the age of 13 years to look after her terminally ill mother. She remained in the family home looking after her father and siblings until her marriage in 1944. After her marriage she moved to Nottingham with her husband, Sidney. In 1961 she emigrated with her family to Australia, but feeling home sick, she returned to England two years later. After several moves in England, she eventually returned to Derbyshire where she lived with her husband in Codnor, until moving to The Meadows, due to ill health.

Having helped out in her grandmother's shop as a child, she later worked in various shops during her adult life. She also acted as a Council Warden for the Elderly whilst living in Morton, Derbyshire.

When she retired, Kathleen and her husband spent a few active years enjoying various holidays abroad, including long stays in Benidorm and several cruises.

Kathleen enjoyed embroidery, rug making, reading and listening to classical and operatic music.

Kathleen leaves behind her husband of 70 years, Sidney. Children, David, Margaret and Janice, grandchildren, Steven, Gary, Jodie, Lisa, Jarrod, Carly and Emma and great grandchilden, Emily, Jacob, Ben, Joe, Tegan, Caiden and Orla Rose. She also leaves a brother, Harry.
