Worrall, Barbara

Funeral report for the late Barbara Worrall The funeral has taken place on 8th February of Barbara Worrall who died in St Luke’s Hospice, Winsford on 31st January 2008 aged 73 years. Barbara was born in Northwich but lived most of her life in the village of Comberbach and was the older sister of Marion and Roy. She attended Great Budworth School until the age of eleven, finishing her education at the Rudheath Secondary Modern School at fifteen. On leaving school Barbara went to work at The Margaret Barcley home for disabled children at Mobberley Hall. In 1953 she married her husband Jim. Their eldest son Alan was born in November 1958 and Steven his brother in February 1961. Tragically Alan was killed in a road accident on Good Friday 13th April 1979. Barbara loved nursing and went to work as an auxiliary nurse for seven years at Heffertson Grange Hospital, Weaverham and finally the Northwich district for eighteen years. She loved every minute of it, meeting many people and being able to give comfort and support to her patients and their families. Barbara had a talent for needlework and made lots of her own clothes. She also embroidered many lovely pictures and cushions. Listening to classical music was also a joy for her and she loved to dance. Barbara and Jim enjoyed many holidays abroad. Her love of travel took her quite often to Canada on her own to visit with her sister Marion and family. Most of all she had a deep love of family, her husband Jim, their son Steven and daughter in law Vivien, four grandchildren and six great grandchildren, whose company she received much pleasure from. Barbara is survived by all the previously mentioned including her sister Marion and brother Roy. She also has two “surrogate” daughters Shirley and Lynn and their children who she loved dearly. The funeral service was held at St Mary & All Saints Church, Great Budworth, followed by committal at Walton Lea Crematorium. The Rev’d Alec Brown officiated. Many donations were received for St Luke’s Hospice. Arrangements by George Bell Funeral Service, Northwich.
