Mrs Sheila Barbara Peden, of Bridge End Grove, Grantham, has died in Lincoln County Hospital.
Mrs Peden was a warm and kind person with a great and enviable gift for making friends easily. She loved her home and garden and doted on her dog.
She had a variety of interests including Tai Chi, patchwork, dancing and her allotment. She attended the U3A and National Trust meetings and most importantly Church, but she was always on the lookout for more groups to join to make more friends.
Mrs Peden was a good neighbour, always ready to help. Her family and friends were everything for her. For all that she was also a shy and private person. If you knew her well, you knew what she had to tell.
The funeral service was held at Grantham Crematorium Chapel, conducted by Robert Holland. Prayers were said by the Rev Andy Scholes.
