Kathleen Coole, sadly passed away peacefully at home on Sunday 19th December 2021, following a long illness.
Kathleen was made a Freeman of the Borough in 1993 for services to the Town. The citation records that she served 32 years as a Town councillor, latterly as Vice Chair and 19 concurrent years as a member of North Wilts District Council. She was an active member of the United Church and was actively involved in so many aspects of the Cricklade Community. There will be many people who have had their lives influenced by her kindness, caring and understanding personality.
She was a loving and generous lady who had time for everyone she met. She was a ‘tour de force’ who displayed great energy and drive, always, behind a smiling kind face.
It is a comfort that her passing is a blessing in that she has been released from the debilitating illness that blighted her later years.
I, for one, am so pleased that I knew this truly wonderful lady.
C P Smith
High Bailiff of Cricklade
