Obituary: Pauline Travis (née Moorcroft)

Date published: 08 December 2023

Pauline Travis (née Moorcroft) passed away on 5 December 2023 aged 82 and a half. 

Treasured Mum, Grandma, sister and Auntie, who will be sadly missed. 

Pauline will be lovingly remembered for her compassion, kindness and selflessness for others.

Her beautiful, graceful presence will not be forgotten. Those who knew her well have been kind enough to share their memories of her colourful character and how she touched so many people’s lives with her kindness.

Mum, ‘you were not a bit of trouble’ and I love you from the depth of my heart always. 

In accordance with Pauline’s wishes, there will not be a funeral, but donations to Springhill Hospice in her honour will be appreciated.
