The funeral was held recently (8th October) for the late Betty Bramhall of Lostock Gralam who died on 27th September 2010, aged 82 years. Betty was born In Whalley Road, Northwich; she was the fourth of six daughters born to Peter and Lizzie Flaherty. She was brought up in Northwich and attended Danebridge School. Betty met Norman Bramhall at the fairground, behind the Green Dragon pub, 67 years ago, when they were both 16. They married at St Helenís Parish Church, Northwich when they were 21. After their marriage they lived in Marple Road, before moving to a new house in Lostock which has been the family home for 61 years. Betty and Norman had three sons Alan, Ian and Kevin but sadly Kevin died. When Betty left school she went to work at Lomas and Spencer Sewing Factory, making eiderdowns and kapok filled life jackets. She remained there until her children were born, returning when they went to school. The factory had changed its name to Harling State and Betty worked there until her retirement in 1980, enjoying many Christmas parties since then. Betty liked to go on holiday, staying in Southbourne near Bournemouth and enjoyed caravanning in Rhyl and North Wales, as she didnít like flying or travelling over water. Betty enjoyed reading, playing bingo at Lostock Club and the Plaza, watching her favourite TV detective programmes and babysitting for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Betty leaves her husband Norman, two sons Alan & Ian, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren. The service was held at Lostock Parish Church followed by interment at Northwich Cemetery.
