Funeral Service for Mavis Alice Parkins

A Service of Celebration and Thanksgiving for the Life of Mavis Alice Parkins (5 June 1929 – 6 February 2019) at Washingborough Parish Church.

Mavis Alice Parkins sadly died at 1825 on Wednesday 6 February 2019. The funeral service was held three weeks later.

The service started at 1130 with the arrival of funeral cortege led by funeral director walking in front with a cane. Which sadly those attending the service did not see as they were already in the church.

The church was nigh full with with some coming from far away, as far away as the southwest of England, Turkish occupied Cyprus and even from Australia.

A very moving reading of the Eulogy by granddaughters Abigail and Jessica, interspersed with their own anecdotes.

Apart from the last few years of her life, Mavis Alice Parkins spent all her life in Lincoln.

As the coffin was lowered into its final resting place, close family and relatives each dropped in a solitary daffodil.

The reception was held at Washingborough Hall, a short walk through a hole in the wall.
