Farewell to Margery

After a telephone conversation with Sam this morning he sent me a parental questionnaire for me to complete and e-mail back to him. I did my best.

I then sent our friend Paul Clarke links to a number of posts featuring his mother, Hilda Margery Clarke, artist, tutee, and friend of L. S. Lowry. Margery, just a year or two younger than our mother, died recently.

This, taken at The First Gallery on 30th November 2014, is my favourite.

Afterwards I posted https://derrickjknight.com/2022/03/07/a-knights-tale-112-the-best-big-brother-ever/

This evening we enjoyed second helpings of yesterday’s Red Chilli takeaway with which I finished the Appassimento and Jackie drank fizzy water.


  1. I am saddened by the loss of your friend Margery, Derrick. Thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. May all find peace in the memories.

  2. I think your friends and family must be very appreciative to have you with them and attentively recording the precious moments.

    I am so sorry for your most recent loss.

  3. My heartfelt condolences on the passing of your friend. Your interminable repertoire of photos hosts fond memories of friends and family and folks you have known and not known.

  4. As I have mentioned before, you’re a dab hand at capturing beautiful unguarded moments. This is a lovely photograph.

  5. Dear Derrick,

    What a piece of sad news! I would like to express my condolences for the passing of Margery. A special acknowledgement is due to you for your writing about her. She will definitely continue to be missed by those who knew her well. Her essence will live on in her ways and charms that touched your heart and mind.

    Yours sincerely,

  6. What a sweet face Margery has! I know she was a pleasant person to be around. All who knew her are obviously all the more blessed to have known her. May her memory and the expressions of friends comfort you during this time of loss, Derrick.
