Farewell to Marion Robson

Home » News » Farewell to Marion Robson

On Thursday 5th September family, friends and church members gathered at Harbour View Crematorium to celebrate the life of Marion Robson.

The service, led by Reverend Nigel Deller, included: Charles Wesley hymns Love Divine and O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing; Psalm 23, which was read by Marion's daughter Valerie and John Chapter 14 verses 1-3, read by Marion's grandson Joseph. Her youngest son, Richard, read one of Marion's favourite poems whilst her eldest son, Michael, played Prelude to Cello Suite No 1 by J.S. Bach.

Marion's husband, Philip, spoke of life as a photo album sharing with those gathered snapshots of his life with Marion, their three children and four grandchildren. Reverend Richard Clutterbuck, who had known the family when they lived at Muswell Hill, gave us insights into Marion as Church member at that time. This was followed by a compilation of thoughts from past and present members of Blandford Methodist Church.

It became obvious from these small snippets of her life that Marion loved her family, led an active and fulfilled life enjoying drama, music and poetry, but most importantly Marion served the Lord by caring for others, both young and old, giving of herself, her time, her talents and her treasures. A faithful servant now in those eternal arms.

On Sunday 20th September, the Blandford congregation gathered for their COVID-secure Harvest Festival. And, although it was different to normal with just a small harvest bounty displayed, no singing of the excellent harvest hymns and donations only in the form of monetary gifts rather than tinned or packet goods, it was a thought provoking service led by Rev Nigel Deller.Nigel challenged...
