It is with great sadness we have to announce the death of Patience Thomson, the wife of the Father of our Company, Past Master David Thomson. Patience passed away on Saturday 21 November. We send our heartfelt condolences to David and all their family.
The main photograph of Patience and David above is taken from Patience’s Twitter page. They enjoyed over 60 years of married life together, but sadly had to spend their last years of married life in separate care homes. Their daughter Alice wrote a number of articles in The Times with moving accounts of these later years.
Looking back to happier times, the photograph above was taken at their home, Queen’s Croft in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, when Court members were invited there in June 2012. Patience and David are centre front. A lovely summer’s day with warm hospitality in warm sunshine.
