In loving memory of Elizabeth Mary Cramp who sadly passed away on 31st May at Calderdale Royal Hospital, Halifax.
Born in Lancaster, Mary grew up with her three older brothers, Bob, Joe and Leo Alston. Her fondest childhood memories were of long summer holidays at Wrea Green near Lytham where they stayed with relatives. Mary met Bob, her future husband, when he was stationed in Lancaster during the war and they were married at Lancaster Cathedral in 1948. During over fifty years of married life, Mary enjoyed looking after her mother, the late Pauline Alston, and her three children, the late Philip, Pauline and Sylvia. Mary knew so many people in Lancaster from school and working at Lansil and Storeys, in addition to her own family and always found people to talk to during her shopping trips.
Mary moved to Huddersfield in 2012 to live with her daughter. Mary will be remembered for enjoying many mugs of tea, shopping and making jokes with her three grandchildren, Jessica, Callum and Lucy.
To enable everyone to share in celebrating Mary’s life, due to limited attendance at the funeral service, we are asking people to enjoy a large mug of tea and a cake at 11.00am on Tuesday June 16th and remember enjoyable moments from her life. Mary particularly loved vanilla slices and egg custards or a toasted teacake!
