10:00 Category: External event featuring LSS member(s)[10:30] Funeral of Louie Croxtall
Members and friends will wish to know of the death of Louie Croxtall, age 104. We send our sympathies to her family. Her funeral will be at Gilroes Cemetery on Wednesday 29th August at 10.30am. This is not the time and place to record her life and contribution to the Society – we will be thinking about the best way to do this in the next few weeks. Louie was associated with the Society all her life, having lived at the Hall as a young girl when her father was live-in manager. She continued to be active in a number of capacities (with her husband Leslie) throughout most of her adult life. Those who were fortunate to hear her unforgettable impromptu speech (aged 99) following the showing of Leicester Secular Society’s film at the Phoenix, will have no doubt as to her continued interest in, and dedication to the Society. Inevitably, having lived to such a great age, many of you will not know her, though you may have seen some of our fascinating video material which has been shown on Open Days. Others who have known her over many years, will sincerely mourn her death. We hope, though, that whoever you are, when you are next at the Hall, you will spare a thought for a remarkable woman, and be aware that without Louie, the Society would not have survived to the present day. It was Louie's wish that any donations in her memory be made to Greenpeace ( https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/page/contribute/greenpeace-main )
