Family firm's thanks after death of 'devoted' Jackie

Jackie Lester.

Denton family firm Vaughan and Lester have thanked everyone for their kind words of condolence following the sad death of Jackie Lester.

Jackie sadly passed away on 22 December after a short illness.

Jackie was described as being ‘at the heart of Vaughan and Lester’ for more than 50 years, as well as being a ‘devoted mum, grandma, great-grandma, sister and friend to all who work at the business’.

For many years, Jackie was a familiar figure with her sons, John and Barry, at the shop on Ashworth Street in Denton. 

Although not at the shop in recent years she was still a key figure with the family business behind the scenes.

Her funeral service was held at Dukinfield Crematorium last Tuesday (11 January).
