ELLEN "NELL" BAXTER The family of the late Ellen Baxter would like to express their sincere thanks to all relatives, friends, neighbours, and all who attended her funeral, we were overwhelmed by the number of people who came to pay their respects. Thank you to Royal Bolton hospital, particularly the nurses on Covid ward A4. They were angels to my mother when we could not be there to hold her hand. They organised cake and tea on mother's birthday and then organised 'FaceTime' with us all. Also we are eternally grateful as a family, that they granted mother's final wish and organised a catholic priest to administer the 'Last Rites'. Also, thank you to all the wonderful carers at Harmony homecare, Atherton. We must give a special mention to Harmony carer, Angela Coulthurst, for her devotion to our Mother during the endless lockdowns when mother was shielding, where they formed a very special bond.
