Peter Loseby and his wife Sheila attended Rosemary Middleton’s funeral on Monday
4th November. Both Rosemary's husband Bob and son Edward gave powerful and well prepared
eulogies. Edward held aloft Rosemary's school report book that they had only discovered
recently. Peter studied it afterwards and pointed out the last “Headmaster 's Comments”
prior to W. F. Gosling's retirement.
The service not only included three hymns but three choir anthems. Most people know
how much Peter enjoys funerals with plenty of choral work. Peter stressed that the
wake was also out of the “Top Drawer”!
Christine, Rosemary’s sister, will be taking Kay Palmer, her mother to Mkt. Bosworth
Church for some quiet reflection soon.
Edward 's wife is researching the family history so Peter pointed her in the direction
of the DGSA website and a suggestion that if she requires any clarification she should
contact Walter Baynes.
