Ethel Armstrong MBE – Eulogy

The funeral of our patron Ethel Armstrong MBE, took place on 26th August 2020, in Lanchester, County Durham.

In these strange times, only 30 people were allowed to attend the service but the Fellowship was well represented by Ken Jarrold, Margaret and Tony Moffat, Cynthia and Bruce Matthews, Pam and Keith Holroyd, John Rostill, Audrey Kimberley and Denise Maidwell.

Ken Jarrold gave a very moving eulogy and the family expressed their thanks to the Fellowship for all they have done for Ethel.
