Carole was a member of Lancashire County Branch and an active member in the Region. For a number of years she served on the publicity committee first in NALGO and then UNISON. Carole was elected as Deputy Regional Convenor before becoming UNISON North West Regional Convenor in 2001. Tragically the month after she was elected Carole was struck down with a brain haemorrhage from which she never fully recovered. Carole was a genuine, strong minded woman whose determination was the envy of many.
Sadly Carole died last Sunday, the day after her 62nd birthday, and she leaves behind husband Ken, her two children Caroline and Sally and granddaughter Emma. Carole will always be remembered for her good humour, loyal friendship and commitment to our union.
Carole’s Funeral will be held on Tuesday 23rd September 2014, at St James Church Briercliffe, Burnley BB10 2HU, at 1pm
