Joan Griffith – Rest in Peace

We have learned of the recent, peaceful death of Joan Griffith, Gwen Dickson’s mum, after a short illness. A lovely lady and woman of deep faith, Joan was a scholar who was always delving into new books about blessed scripture and who always wanted to share what she had learnt along with her own insights. Just before her illness, Joan was sending us her Scripture Notes to publish on the parish website and you won’t be surprised that the book she wanted to take to the hospital with her was a copy of the ‘Parallel New Testament in Greek and English’ by Alfred Marshall. We pray for Joan, Gwen, Andrew and Joan’s family.

We are blessed with an archive of Joan’s notes covering the Church’s 3-year cycle of Sunday scripture readings and, with her family’s permission, will endeavour to re-publish them each week.
