Celebration of Life

On Saturday 13th July, Helen Yool’s family hosted a tea party at the Alexandra Hotel to celebrate Helen’s life. On a beautiful summer’s afternoonHelen’s sister Sheila, niece Julie and nephew Marcus welcomed other relatives, old friends and neighbours, staff from Shire House care home where Helen was so happy and members of the Society. The LRS Committee was represented by Stephen Wilkins, Audrey Standhaft and Keith Shaw.

Following a wonderful cream tea, Sheila talked about Helen’s life, a poem chosen by Helen was read and the Society presented a photographic portrait of Helen, taken by Molly Spencer and printed on canvas to Sheila.


Many of you will recognise the picture as that we used to illustrate our article about Helen when her death was announced.

A selection of pictures taking at the event by John Marriage are shown below.
