In memoriam — Revd Sue Burchell

Banbury Branch Remembers Revd Sue Burchell

Members of the Banbury Branch of the ODG were shocked and saddened at the death, after a short illness, of our friend, fellow ringer and Branch chairman Sue Burchell. Born in Yorkshire, and studying at Sheffield University where she discovered the joys of bellringing, Sue had lived in Oxfordshire for over 30 years. Many of these were spent in the village of Great Tew, where she was very involved in the life of the community. She was tower captain there from 1985 until she moved away from the village to become priest-in-charge in the parish of St Leonard’s, Banbury, following her ordination to the priesthood in 2008 and subsequent curacy.

Sue was looking forward to her retirement in August, giving her more time to pursue her bellringing activities and to complete the work on her doctorate. Her ready smile and cheerful, friendly disposition will be greatly missed by her many friends, not only in Oxfordshire but around the country.

A full obituary will follow in due course.
