Joyce Stockton

Tributes have been paid to a former Mayor of Nantwich Joyce Stockton who has died.

Mrs Stockton passed away on Saturday (December 15) at the Cypress Court Nursing Home in Crewe.

Mrs Stockton served on Nantwich Town Council for 20 years before becoming the town’s second Mayor, succeeding Mrs Edith Williams, in 2010/2011.

She previously held the position of Chair of the Town Council in 1995/96 and 2003/04 and was also a borough councillor on the former Crewe and Nantwich Council for nine years.

She lived and worked in Nantwich all her life and with husband Eddie, who was also a councillor, she held a number of positions in local organisations.

She was a Governor at Wyche Primary School, where she attended as a child, an executive director of Nantwich Civic Society and a director of Nantwich Museum from 1992 to 1999.

Cllr Arthur Moran, who was her Deputy Mayor in 2010/2011, said: “Joyce was a true Dabber, well respected as a Town and Crewe and Nantwich Borough Councillor, who always put the residents of Nantwich first.

“She was also for many years a Beam Heath Trustee and only the second female trustee in its long history.”

The Town Council offers its condolences to Mrs Stockton’s family at this very sad time.

Gavin Palin Funeral Services is making the arrangements for the funeral which will take place at Crewe Crematorium Chapel on Thursday December 27 at 2pm.

Donations to Blue Cross for Pets (the local shop is in Pepper Street).
