Funeral service held for Lisa Owen, daughter of Fenland councillor Kit Owen

THE funeral for Lisa Owen, daughter of Fenland councillor Kit Owen, took place today at St Peter’s Church, March.

Lisa, 42, a former Royal Navy nurse, suffered chronic ill health because of a serious back injury sustained on military service and died unexpectedly at her home in Wisbech St Mary on January 3.

The Rev Matthew Bradbury, vicar of Wisbech St Mary, said: “Lisa was a valued and much loved member of the congregation. Every day she faced pain and restricted mobility with fortitude and good humour. She was a fine example to us all of courage, resilience and adversity.”

The service was followed by cremation at Fenland Crematorium.
