The Sudden Loss of Bessie Carrington Shakes Us All


We do not note every Collington resident death on our site.

But Bessie Carrington earned her own rules.

In her very short time at Collington she dazzled all of us with her energy, her warmth, and her intelligence.  She was active in a myriad ways here, not least as the main builder and designer of this website.

She was always willing to lend a laugh and a hand, always with a clear and informed opinion on what had to be done. I will find it hard to imagine Collington without her.

Our deepest caring goes to her beloved husband, Paul, and her extended family.  There will be a memorial this Sunday, April 10, at Collington.

P.S. I understand that the time for the memorial is back to 12 PM on Sunday.
