We said farewell to Denise Brooks on 16th June 2017. Her funeral Mass took place in St Joseph’s Church, and the burial afterwards was in Middleton churchyard. Denise will be much missed in the church; until a few years ago she was one of our principal flower arrangers. She also served as a governor in St Joseph’s School and often went into school to hear the children read. We offer our sympathy and support to Colin and to all the Brooks family.
