Those who attended lined-up the street to applaud Mrs Spink, as the hearse took Pat from her family home to a nearby church so the funeral could take place.

Her funeral was only attended by family members and close friends due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

One of Pat’s daughters, Lizzie Gloyens, said: “It turned out to be a very wet day but, in spite of the weather, there was still well over a hundred people lining the Henley Road to applaud our dear mum and wave a final goodbye.

“It was certainly emotional for the family but we really appreciated the effort made by all her friends and neighbours who weren’t able to attend the funeral because of restrictions.”

It also confirmed that at some point next year, a celebration of life will take place at Marlow Church in memory of Mrs Spink.

She leaves behind four children and 10 grandchildren.
