Anne Thomson

Anne passed away peacefully on 6 December at Oakham Grange. She had lived in Wing for more than 40 years.

Anne brought a  love of music to Wing,  forming firstly  The Wing Ladies Choir, followed by concerts to raise funds to purchase the village hall. She was a hard taskmaster, any vocal wobble resulted in a stern look !

She then played the music for the series of very successful pantomimes. Latterly, she played the organ for church services.

She loved supporting concerts at Oakham and Uppingham schools, and travelled further afield to hear celebrated musicians. Music really was her first love.

She was very active in Wing, serving on the Parish Council and Village Hall Committee.She was also a member of Wing WI.

She will be missed.  People have spoken about her elegance;   always  immaculate.. 

Anne’s funeral is on Thursday 17 December at 2pm at the Wing church of St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s. A piper will lead her from the church to the grave yard.

Anne will leave Cedar House 1:35 -1:40. She will go at walking pace up Reeves Lane to pass her old house. Then onto Top Street and to the Church, from the Oakham direction.

The service is at 2pm BY INVITATION ONLY.

Dormans have to have names and contact details of all those attending, but of course, her many friends are welcome to say a final goodbye as she passes by in the funeral procession.

A Celebration of her Life will be arranged next year when the restrictions are lifted.

Unfortunately  due to Covid 19 restrictions, people cannot attend the service unless they receive an invitation. But it would be wonderful if anyone would like to be on the road  to pay their respects.

Thanks to Oakham Grange for the wonderful care that she received during these last few difficult months.
