Mrs P. Climpson

MRS Paula Climpson, of Longcliffe Road, Grantham, has died. She was 53.

She was born in Grantham, but was brought up in Stenwith Mill, near Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir, the youngest daughter of the late Mr and Mrs J. Farren. She had three brothers and a sister.

Mrs Climpson attended Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir Primary School, followed by Walton Girls’ Secondary School.

A skilled machinist, she worked at Kemptons and then Witham Contours, Grantham, before becoming a full-time mum and housewife.

She married Peter in May 1984, and they had a daughter, Rebecca, and son, Edward.

Her main hobbies included travelling and shopping. Her favourite city in the UK was York, and because of her many relatives, her favourite location abroad was the Black Forest region in Germany. She loved teddy bears and dining out with friends.
