HILDA WHARTON 28th December 2017 At Arrowe Park Hospital, without pain, after a short illness, aged 96 years. Dearly loved wife of the late Frederick, her husband of 63 years. Devoted mother of Terry, her beloved only child. Loving grandmother of Tom and Rebecca. Unstinting long-time care giver to her mother-in-law and husband in their time of need. Her life was conspicuous for her alert, interest in and compassion for others and her joy in their successes, her determination and independence, her dignity, self-respect and her love of the arts. But also, even at the very end of her long life, her amazing grasp of the latest technologies. She was a remarkable lady. She will be deeply missed by those she was most strongly bound to; by her son and dear daughter-in-law Rosemary, nieces, nephew and their families, her close friends and neighbours. Funeral service and cremation will be held at Landican Crematorium Centre Chapel on Friday 19th January 2018 at 12 noon. In lieu of flowers, donations would be much appreciated to her favourite charity Claire House Children's Hospice at Clatterbridge Hospital. All enquiries F.R. Kirk & Son Funeral Directors, 20 The Village, Bebington. T. 0151 645 3035.
