Letters: Dina Anstead 1922 to 2020

Dinah Anstead -12th March 1922 to 7th June 2020
Age 98

A memorial to a wonderful neighbour and friend.

Dinah moved to Furnace Lane with her husband and son in 1965 next door to Joan and Alec Kirkbride. They were neighbours for over 55 years and no one could have had a better neighbour and friend than Dinah over those years.

Ann and Frank Smith also became close friends when they moved into Furnace Lane and indeed Dinah was well loved by all her neighbours.

On her 98th birthday Dinah very proudly thought she was the oldest resident in Nether Heyford. She loved living in the village and being part of village life.

Her wish was that she would end her days here in the village and she peacefully passed away on 7th June in her own home.

A truly lovely lady, she will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

Joan Kirkbride
