Elsie Hallworth

Elsie Hallworth passed away peacefully in hospital on Wednesday 14th October, aged 76 years.

After leaving school Elsie worked on Accrington Market, after marrying her husband Clifford, she took on the role as a full time house wife and home maker.

In her spare time she devoted most of it to local voluntary and community groups, these included being a loyal member of Girlguiding, volunteering as a Brownie Leader for over 30 years, Elsie was also appointed Division Commissioner for Accrington during this time. Up until her decline in health, she was a committed member of Antley Church, and supported them in any way she could.  When her children were young she was also a Governor of Altham School, where her claim to fame was the SAS campaign “Save Altham School”, she also served on Altham Parish Council for a time and helped out organising the annual Altham Church Christmas Fayre.

When not busy organising events or going to meetings she loved spending time with her family. She liked going for meals out and also enjoyed going away on holiday, with Majorca, Menorca, Zante, Kos and the Canary Islands being familiar destinations.  Later in life, along with her husband Clifford, they took pleasure in visiting their daughter Deborah and her family in California.

Later in life she loved watching crime dramas on the TV, such as Columbo and CSI Miami, as well as doing crosswords and completing jigsaws.

Elsie will be deeply missed but fondly remembered by her loving family and all those who knew her.

A much loved mum of Stephen, Deborah and Sarah, a dear mother in law of Sue, Minh and Paul, a treasured grandma of Zach, Reece, Emma, Dylan, Matthew and Oliver and also a dear cousin and friend.
