Yesterday I drove a total of 130 miles, attending Sylvia’s funeral. It was a lovely simple service and she is buried with her father. Her husband, George, was very upset. I passed him the condolences of the Elizabeth Goudge Group.
It was such a lovely church, in the middle of the countryside, that I had to take photos. The churchyard is beautiful too and just before the service a large flock of gulls settled on the nearby fields.
Sylvia was the author of The World Of Elizabeth Goudge and was instrumental in getting the Blue Plaque on Rose Cottage to commemorate Elizabeth’s life and work. It was Sylvia who asked me to set up the web site as she thought it was so important for her work to be remembered and introduced to a new generation of readers.
