Mrs Anson passed away in her sleep on the night of Monday, February 11.
Mrs Anson was for many years an integral part of village life, helping to organise and taking part in village activities as well as reporting on them in the Banbury Guardian.
She was the head of mathematics and senior mistress at Tudor Hall School for several years.
Her husband Cyril said: “The headmistress, Mrs Blyth, could not believe her luck when Ethel wrote outlining her qualifications and telephoned her the next day, asking, ‘How soon can you start?’”
