Sadly I have to let you all know of the passing last week of Angela Profit, nee Horsman.
Angela’s husband John has sent the following email with details of her funeral:-
Angie’s funeral will be held at Knowle Parish Church on Friday, May 8th
Flowers will be from family only, but any donations should be for Macmillan Nurses, Solihull or Marie Curie Hospice, Solihull, c/o
Thomas Bragg & Sons, 562 Stratford Rd, Shirley, Solihull B90 4AY.
Angie died peacefully, with her wish to be at home with her 2 sons and me at her side.
The most amazing help came from the team of NHS District Nurses who worked far beyond their call of duty, to ensure Angie was looked after in the very best possible way.
Johnathan, Angie’s son sent the following email to me:-
Thanks again for your support, my mum loved the BBC and having a continued connection post retirement was a joy for her. I know we would love to see as many BBC friends pay their respects at the funeral.
