Susan MaryLAWSONSue In loving memory of my wonderful sister and soulmate, who tragically passed away so suddenly after a short stay in hospital four months ago. As adults, Sue and I had never lived near each other until the move we both made to settle here in Bucks. And we really did make the most of this time, enjoying the rural feel to life here and the peace and quiet of the countryside. After Don died in 2018, Sue was the very best of companions. We just enjoyed doing ordinary things together, but also she gave such valuable advice when needing things for the house. I can't count how many times she helped with shortening or lengthening fabric, trousers, skirts, fancy dress costumes for the grandchildren's school events. Sue attended Fallowfield Church Technical High School, Fallowfield, Manchester, from 1955 to 1962, which she says was ‘perfect for me - I did lots of arty stuff and the school had 300 pupils, everyone knew everyone else, and it felt like a family.’ Sue so valued her friends from these early days in Manchester. Then there were friends she met while at teacher training college at St. Osyth’s Clacton, her years teaching in Cheshire schools and later at the Alsager Campus. I know she liked to keep in touch with you all, especially after she moved to be near me and the family. She mentioned so many of you by name as we sat together in the hours before her passing. Sue loved her cottage, thrived on the new friendships and enjoyed the wonderful mix of characters who were her neighbours. She quickly became known around Wendover, making friends so easily, taking on sewing classes, and constantly making beautiful new creations with ease using her amazing skills with stitching. Sue was always a central part of our regular family gatherings, perhaps making a lemon drizzle cake, or rolling her sleeves up to help as a truly invaluable sister. We were so in awe of how she could turn her skills to so many things that none of the rest of us could. Dear Sue, so glad that we made our years in Bucks together six really special years. I will continue to miss her so much, but am so grateful that we had an amazing run of time, as two ladies already late in their 70s. We were able to reminisce over early childhood days in Gatley, and latterly, our time down here in Bucks was simply the best - gentle, enjoyable, full of meaningful memories. A private cremation took place on 11th March, and we celebrated her life on the 20th March with our family group of us here at home and in the garden. But we will miss her all the other days too, calling in for her favourite biscuits (kit-kat) and her cups of tea. Little Sue, small but tough, slim but so resilient. Thanks to all who already sent acknowledgements, letters, emails, cards, they are such a wonderful tribute to that little sister of mine. Anyone moved to do so please feel free to post your own few words to complement mine. Sue’s loving sister Janet.

I miss Sue so much. She was my very special friend, we spoke and text each other every day. She was taken from us far too soon.
Rest in peace.
