THE SISTER of a deceased hospital worker is inviting all in the area who knew her to attend her funeral.

Erica Buckle, 68, died at home in Milton Keynes on July 20.

Ms Buckle's sister, Mary Johnson, said: "She was found dead at her home in Milton Keynes, and we're bringing her back to Slough to be cremated. She worked at Wexham Park Hospital for years, and had lots of friends there.

"She lived with her partner in Slough for many years, and after they split up, she moved with her new partner to Milton Keynes. She worked at a Marks and Spencer there for years, and retired when she was 65. I used to go and visit her, but often didn't have a lot of time to do so.

"We still don't know exactly what she died of. I've been trying to get in touch with her ex-partner, but so far haven't been able to find her.

"We're putting out an open invitation to attend – many of her friends in Milton Keynes are coming down, and we know she had a lot of friends at Wexham Park. I'm hoping that some of them will come."

Ms Buckle's funeral will be held at Slough Crematorium on August 28, at 1pm. Flowers should be delivered to Newman and Son Funeral Directors, Stoke Road, Slough.
