Cynthia Harris

Cynthia with cakeA long-standing resident of Wing, Cynthia Harris, passed away peacefully in Crown House, Oakham, on the 6th Feb.

An enthusiastic and loyal member of Wing WI and a great supporter of Wing Church, her friends will miss her dry humour and amazing knowledge of football!

Cynthia’s funeral service was held on Thursday 21 February at 11 am in Wing Parish church. Refreshments were available afterwards, kindly arranged by Wing WI, in the village hall.

Rev. Pippa Madgewick was officiating. Donations, in lieu of flowers please, will be shared between Wing Parish Church and The Salvation Army.

Over 70 of her friends attended and the floral tributes from her close friends were perfect for the lovely early spring day when we said goodbye to our dear friend.



Janet Ridley

It is with deep regret that I have to announce that Janet, while enjoying a much anticipated holiday in Majorca with some family members, suffered a severe stroke and subsequently died.

Janet Mary RIDLEY (née Medwell) Of Wing and previously of Stoke Albany, died suddenly on 28th June 2018 aged 83 years. Much loved widow of George, mother of the late Jane and Diana and sister to Michael, Linda and Christine. The funeral will be held at Wing Parish Church on Thursday 26th July at 2.00pm.

Our thoughts are with her loved ones and her many friends at this sad time. All of us who knew her will miss her. She overcame so many tragedies in her life, losing both her daughters and her husband before her death.

Family flowers only, donations if desired to the Stroke Association. c/o E M Dorman, Funeral Directors, Beechcroft, 69 High St East, Uppingham, Rutland, LE15 9PY. Tel: 01572 823976
