MRS Jean Wright, of Larch Avenue, Allington Gardens, Allington, has died in Grantham Hospital. She was 73.

She was born in The Meadows, Nottingham, in July 1939. She attended school there.

For a number of years she worked as a machinist, making clothes for Marks and Spencer.

She married Terry while he was doing his National Service and their marriage lasted for over 52 years.

Mrs Wright gave up work when their daughter, Linda, was born, but she then started a new career as a lollipop lady, until her husband moved on with his work.

One of her hobbies was cross stitch and she had many items of her handiwork displayed on her walls. She also liked reading and doing crossword puzzles.

Together with her husband she enjoyed holidays and had travelled to many countries, but her favourite holiday spot was Zell/Merl in Germany, visiting their friends Edith and Robert.

During a visit to Australia, she conquered her fear of heights and walked to the top and across the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The couple bought a motorhome and travelled to Spain, France, Holland and Germany, until ill health made this difficult. They then spent some of the winter in an apartment in Spain until again ill health made this impossible.

Mrs Wright was proud of her daughter and son-in-law’s good marriage and her two grandchildren, Matthew and Jaime, and she was looking forward to Matthew’s marriage to Kari in the future.

The funeral service was held at Grantham Crematorium Chapel.

Family mourners included: Terry Wright, Linda (Flinn), Malcolm, Matthew, Kari, Jaime, Pam Debusk, Winnie Brumpton, Mary Bywater, and Bill and Stephen Bywater.
