Elaine also prepares minutes for meetings, completes the parish accounts and Gift aid returns for the Diocese. Elaine is also an Authorised Person for Marriage.
A Catholic all her life originally from Bath where she lived for over 40 years before moving to Malmesbury. Unfortunately, Elaine lost her first husband to cancer in 2001; then her beloved husband Graham was diagnosed with heart failure in 2019. In December 2021, it was confirmed that he had lung cancer with months to live.
Graham passed away at home 2nd March 2022 aged 64. Graham was MC at Mass and handyman around the Church, hall and garden. Fr Philip and Fr Isidore Obi concelebrated the Mass with Deacon Steve Boughton preaching the Gospel and the Homily. Elaine is grateful for the support she has received from friends, parishioners and especially Fr Philip for his understanding including words of comfort when she has thrown a ‘wobbly’!
