A Memorial Service for Philippa Francis is to be held at The Chapel of Ease, Northend, a place she called home for almost two decades.

The service on Wednesday, October 12 at 12.45pm will coincide with the service at Saffron Walden where she has lived for the last few years.

Philippa lived in Northend for almost 20 years and was the wife of Rev Philip Francis who was then Vicar of the Parish of Burton Dassett, then Gaydon and ultimately the Dassett Magna group of Parishes.

She was a much loved member of the community and very supportive of Rev Francis in his work.

The service will be led by Rev Canon Norman Howes and he will use the same order of service as in Saffron Walden.

There will also be a quiet time for reflection in the church at 10.45am. All who knew her are welcome.
