Katy Durden 1950-2020
Kate Durden It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of a dear friend and member of the Woodman Folk Club, Katy Durden.

Katy, together with her late husband Trevor, were both long-time members of the club and were known and loved by many throughout the years.

Katy’s battle with Leukaemia ended on the 18th of August, when she sadly drifted away from us all.

A life full of music, is a life full of rhymes,
A life full of friends, is full of good times,
A life loved by family, is the strongest lifeline,
A life full of all these things, is a life that will shine.

Shine on dear Katy.


Katy’s funeral will take place at Lower Gornal Crematorium on Tuesday 8th September at 1:00pm.

Due to the current situation, only close family will be allowed in the crematorium itself, but people are allowed to pay their respects under the canopy and in the outside spaces. Of course, social distancing rules apply at all times.
