1971 - A Lady in Pittsburgh misses English Churches

This lady lived in the United States from 1964, with her husband Brian Pelly and in due course with three children, and died there earlier this year. Her affection for St Mary’s is illustrated by this article she wrote for the Pittsburgh Press in May 1971, and for many years she contributed very generously to the church finances. She was the daughter of Rev. Gerald Hutchinson, Rector of St Mary’s.

On 29 July, her ashes were interred in St Mary’s churchyard, and there was a well-attended memorial service for her in the church.
