Grace McCormack, 1927 - 2015

Born in North Wales, Grace moved to London in 1948 from her home town of Rhos On Sea North Wales with her husband Arthur and settled into her home in Berrylands in 1966. Before retiring in 1991, she worked for many years at the government laboratories in Waterloo and Teddington. 

Grace was a very active member of the local community over the years, taking on several roles including Neighbourhood Watch warden, and road steward for the Raynes Park and West Barnes Residents Association and The Guide. 

Many people will recall her public spiritedness and acts of kindness, which would make too long a list to include here. You may have enjoyed one of the apples she picked from her tree and put on her front wall for passers-by, along with bowls of water for thirsty dogs. Grace was the kind of neighbour everyone would want to have, with her door always open, ready to help and with a cheerful smile.

Grace leaves a son, Ian, and will be sadly missed by her many friends and neighbours.
