We are sad to announce the death of Claire Walker who passed peacefully attended by her family.

Our hearts go out to Mark, Jessie, Joe & Maddie and all the family.

Please pray for them.

Message from the Walker family:

Dear St. Mary's Parishioners

First of all thank you so much for all your emails, cards and messages. We have been overwhelmed by the amazing tributes to Claire and the love and support we've had at this time from our Catholic community. Genuine thanks and apologies for not being able to respond to them all individually yet.

Claire's funeral will be at St.Mary's at 2.30 pm on Monday 5th October. Unfortunately because of the current situation we are limited to how many can come and it's only family and a few of Claire's closest friends I'm afraid.

However, we are asking anyone who would have liked to be there to set an alarm on their phone and at that time pause, have a cup of tea, glass of wine, or whatever you fancy, and share it with memories of Claire, and of course say a prayer in memory of my beautiful wife and our amazing mother.

We're only having family flowers at the funeral, and there is no need to do this, but if you'd like to do something for Claire we are asking for donations to Hospice in The Weald who were so amazing in the last part of Claire's time with us. These can be made at:

Thank you again for your love and support for us and the wonderful tributes to Claire, and we hope to catch up with you over the next months...

Mark, Jessie, Joe and Maddie Walker
