Jeannie Wall, 1938–2014

Jeannie Wall, when the Conservation Society three years ago needed a newsletter distributor for her neighbourhood, cheerfully said she had Alzheimer’s disease, “but I can certainly do that job.” She died in November 2014, of cancer.

  Born in May 1938, Jeannie grew up in Bushey, Herts, trained as a nurse at St Mary’s, Paddington, and became a health visitor in Watford. In 1966 she married David Wall and they moved to Glastonbury — living for the past 40 years at 1 Torview Avenue. She worked as a nurse at Clarks until twin sons Nick and Tim were born. Then came a daughter, Tracy (Williams), who lives just down the road.

  Jeannie was active in many local organizations, including the U3A. She was a founder of the Abbey Croquet Club and a life member of the Conservation Society.
