Care home’s remembrance ceremony for former resident Jill

Loving husband Peter Stapleton donated a bench to a Chesterfield care home in memory of his wife. Jill Stapleton lived at Barnfield Care Home, on Heath Road, Holmewood, for over four years, until February 2018. A remembrance ceremony was held at the home with Peter, Jill’s friends, fellow residents, family members and care home staff.

After donating the bench, Peter said: “I wanted the home to have something to remember her by.”

Those at the ceremony were invited to write messages to loved ones lost, which were attached to balloons and let off in the home’s garden.

Joanne Clark, home manager at Barnfield Care Home, said: “Jill was loved by everyone at Barnfield Care Home.Care home’s remembrance ceremony for former resident Jill
