OBITUARIES & MEMORIAM MRS DAWN ELIZABETH LEGGETT
A Service of Thanksgiving for the life of Mrs Dawn Elizabeth Leggett was held in St Peter's Church, Holton, on Friday 29th March 2019. She had recently returned from a holiday abroad where she had been feeling unwell passed
and unexpectedly peacefully
her home in Holton on March 2nd
74. Entry music
was “And Winter Came ...” by Enya. The Reverend Bill Mahood officiated and the hymns with Jason Busby on the organ were “The Lord's My Shepherd”, “All things Bright and Beautiful” and “The Day Thou Gavest, Lord Is Ended” were
sung. Bible Readings
were Psalm 46 and Chapter 14: verses 1-6 and 27 from St John's Gospel. In a tribute the sentences by David Hawkins, “You Can Shed Tears That Nana is Gone” were read by grandchildren
Oliver. In his address the Revd Mahood said that Dawn was born on November 13th 1944 to Margery and Alan Abrams in the Clifton area in Bristol where Margery was evacuated, due to the war, to stay with relatives. She was their second child, her older brother is Paul and younger sister is Jill. In the
were living at Shenfield when Dawn trained
mid 1950's the family and
as a telephonist at Barclays Bank head office in London. During that time she met Reg Leggett and they were married in September 1963 and lived in a flat in Forest Gate, London. They saved enough for their first house on a new estate in Writtle, Chelmsford, but had been there for only a short time when Reg's firm asked him to carry out some work at a factory in Norfolk, whilst there Reg was asked to move to Halesworth to help and establish a new factory there and they moved to their present house in Holton in 1967. Dawn worked in the office of

IN loving memory of Gina, who passed away 21st June 2018, a very dear friend and sadly missed.
Also on June 5th, what would have been her 70th birthday, how she would have partied! From Sue and Neville
the new factory for about a year and moved from there to work for the Halesworth doctors in their dispensary in Halesworth Market
P Abrams (brother), Mr & Mrs G Speller (sister),
and Jodiean Speller, Paul Speller
Place during which time she had two children, Wendy and Mark. She later worked in the new surgery at Cutlers Hill. She then qualified as a Keep Fit instructress and had her own classes which she took to perform at the Royal Albert Hall and Seymour Hall in London.
She then trained and passed exams to be a doctors' practice manager, but never took a post doing this. After leaving the surgery she became self- employed, carrying out soft furnishings. Keen on sport she enjoyed playing tennis in Halesworth
and created some golf in
Southwold. Never idle at home she enjoyed working in their garden and for relaxation she
tapestries. When she stopped working she took up playing bridge which she loved and played 3 or 4 times a week at clubs in Southwold and Walberswick and with friends in their homes. She will always be remembered for her smile and happy disposition and always willing to help others and, as one member put it, “a light has gone out of our lives”. Dawn loved and enjoyed her family and all get-together days and she liked to travel in their mobile home, the first one of which she helped to fit out, and she enjoyed overseas holidays. On their last and 15th holiday in Eygpt she was unwell, and on returning home she saw their doctor and was being treated, but on the second day home she died in Reg's arms. The family and immediate mourners were her husband Reg, Mr & Mrs P Blankley (daughter), Mr M Leggett and Linda (son), Emma, Oliver,
Georgia and Arron (grandchildren), Mr & Mrs HOWLETT
GRETA would like to express her sincere thanks to all who attended the funeral of her dearly loved husband, John, on April 17th at Rumburgh Church. If desired, donations in memory of John for the Church Fund will be gratefully accepted and can be sent c/o Rosedale Funeral Services, 19 Market Place, Halesworth IP19 8BB.

Lillie and me, the good old days
WE met, we married a long time ago, (1956) we didn’t have much, wages were low. No tele, no radio, no bath, times were hard, just a cold water tap, gas and a walk up the yard. No holiday abroad no carpets on the floors, we had coal on the fire and never locked the doors. Children arrived, no pill in those days, we raised them together without any state aid. No valium, no drugs, no LSD,
we cured all our pains with a nice cup of tea. If you were sick you were treated at once,
not told to make an appointment and come back next month. No vandals, no muggings, there was nothing to rob, in fact, you felt rich with a couple of bob. But people were happy in those far off days, tender and caring in so many ways. Milkmen and paper boys would whistle and sing, a night at the flicks was a wonderful thing. Oh, we had our fair share of trouble and strife, we just had to face it, that was life. Now I’m alone and look back through the years, I remember the blessings the home full of love, we faced it all together, for that I thank God Sleep tight sweetie, don’t forget to save my place. If only I could have my darling Lillie back, I would happily start all over again.

Researching The Laurels, Rectory Lane
I AM researching the history of The Laurels in Rectory Lane, Halesworth. I know that it was gifted to the URC church (Halesworth
Chapel) in 1931 and lived in by various Ministers
the Church. In 1936 Mr H N Etheridge, a prominent worker
of the East Suffolk Methodist Circuit was living there. Can anyone
tell me who lived
there after Mr Etheridge, is the house still owned by the URC church, if not, when was it sold and who bought it.

News from Halesworth Community Church
WE knocked on the door – no reply. We tried phoning – no- one picked up. That was strange. We had travelled from Suffolk to Bristol to visit a family that had requested help – but we got no response. Suddenly the door burst open and there was our host. She had been at the other end of the house preparing a meal; her phone was on silent – but at last we were welcomed in.
It was so good to sit with that family – Dad from South Africa, Mum from Jamaica and three young people ranging from thirteen years old to early twenties and to hear their story and struggles and to be able to offer help. By the time we left a few hours later, we had eaten well, and they had plenty of food for thought. Another couple we visited in the same city were being run ragged by their lovely but rather wilful
children. We trust that advice given
will mean that the
children will be more secure and peace will reign. Those are just two situations
that form part of the ongoing work of the church. Recently a lady struggling with ME wrote in from America saying, ‘I am in great need of support as several difficult issues have developed and I am floundering on my own.’ Whether in person, email,
