Lilian Bamforth

Born 10th May 1931 Died 9th November 2015

Memorial by Gabriel Kaden Jacobs, age 10

Lilian lived in Sheffield all her life. She first lived in the Brightside area and then moved to the Pitsmoor area for the last 46 years. Lilian’s family Lilian had two sisters and two brothers, a son called Kevin and two grandchildren. She also had five great-grandchildren. Lilian’s life Lilian went to a church that she absolutely loved called St Peter’s Church in Ellesmere. Everyone loved her there. She was amazing to all of us.

I was lucky enough to catch some information about Lilian. This is what her friend said, “Lilian liked to gamble. She could always have a good laugh.” She had an amazing personality and she was just a lovely person to be around. Lilian had a fantastic sense of humour and loved to be the centre of attention.

Being new to the area and the church, I hadn’t known her long but she loved to embarrass me when I arrived at church by grabbing me and giving me a big hug and a kiss and telling me that she wanted to adopt me. Very embarrassing to a nine year old but I still loved her anyway.

She was a lovely lady that will be missed greatly by those who were fortunate enough to meet her.
