Sarah Downie- message from Judith Janes

Home » News » Sarah Downie - message from Judith Janes

It is with sadness that I inform the church family of the death of my mother, Sarah Downie on Monday 9th January after a short illness. Sarah was a lifelong Methodist after marrying my father and she lived her life through the many churches she attended. She gave her time to church needs within various choirs, Young Wives, Network, Women's Fellowship groups, and endless fundraising sales of work, cake stalls, teas and lunches. She had a wonderful life and was cared for and loved wherever she lived. Her constant faith supported her and her family was her world. Her funeral will take place at Alton Methodist Church on Wednesday 1st March at 2.00 and all will be welcome to join the family to celebrate her life and enjoy tea afterwards in the church hall. Her ashes will be buried with my father, John, in Penrith cemetery, overlooking the Lakeland fells where they lived for 22 years.
