Hilda Wadsworth

I (Roger) have received these details today for your information and prayers. Note there are no details of restrictions specific to this arrangement, except the strict Government guidelines that have been issued for all to observe restricting any small /large group gatherings.

Cremation has been arranged for Thursday 23rd April at 11.30 a.m. at Hither Green Crematorium, Verdant Lane, Lewisham, SE6 1TP.

No decision has yet been made about donations though it has been suggested they might be postponed until the thanksgiving service. The undertaker is Francis Chappell & Sons, 231 High Street, Bromley BR1 1NZ. If flowers are sent they should be delivered to them by 10.a.m. on that day.

I have just recieved a note from Les & Jean White today . they both wrote

“Hilda had known me all my life and it was through her that Les and I went to Kalene in 1962. She was from our church, Brook Lane Chapel, and as youngsters we supported the work at Kalene, Hillwood Farm and Sakieji.

While at Kalene Hilda was ‘Auntie’ to our children.We told the people in church this morning as many knew her and was reminded what a lot she did for the Lunda people at Kalene and the surrounding area. She will be remembered with great thanks and we have lost a dear friend. ”

At around 1.30pm today the Lord took Hilda Home! She’d had quite a difficult time in the last few months, especially finding it hard to swallow and therefor eating hardly anything in the last month or so except ice cream. She was still able to converse but was very weary. Just yesterday she said she wanted her family around her – but her parents, sisters and brother had all predeceased her – something she found hard to believe. Her cousin visited faithfully but her niece lives in Somerset so was unable to do so. Obviously we don’t yet know about any arrangements but will let you know when they are made.
