The funeral of Janey Hatfield will take place today, Friday 7th of December 2018 at Streetly Crematorium’s West Chapel with the service starting at 1.45pm.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Janey’s family, friends and all attending today the very best on this tragic and sad day.
Janey was the very soul of Walsall Wood, and whether meeting up with the old folks for their monthly get together at the Brickies, finding old photos to post on Facebook, entertaining us on live Facebook feed with Russell Smith or just winding up the regulars she did so much more to bring local history and community together than I’ve managed in a decade.
Most of all, Janey was the most excellent online pal, co-conspirator, and the only person ever allowed to call me ‘Fluffy’.
I can’t believe she’ll never take the piss out of me again.
Rest in peace, Spud. You will be missed. Bless you for the fun we had and the trolling we pulled.
My condolences to Janey’s family, friends and all those who loved her. She was such an irrepressible, exuberant character. Life hereabouts will never be the same again. Goodnight, Janey.
