A distressing Bereavement at Conisbrough.


Their many friends will be most deeply distressed to have heard of the bereavement suffered yesterday (Thursday) by Mr and Mrs G.P.Gregory of Minnymoor Lane, Conisbrough, by the death of their 13 years old daughter Theresa Ann.

She had left her home shortly before 8 to catch a bus to St Bernard’s Roman Catholic School, off Herringthorpe Road Rotherham, and a few minutes later, was fatally injured on the main Sheffield – Doncaster Road.

Theresa´s brothers, Paul (11) and Michael (five) were about to set out from home to catch their ownbus to school at Thrybergh, when one of Theresa´s friends arrived with news of the accident.

Theresa was taken by ambulance to Doncaster Royal Infirmary but was found to be dead on arrival.

She would have been 14 years old on Sunday and had been at Herringthorpe school for three years. She was a most delightful, cheerful and helpful girl who most excellently exemplified the high standards of the girl guide movement to which she belonged.

She was a Patrol Leader of Denaby St. Alban´s Troop (Rotherham North East district); her mother, a member of the nursing auxiliary at Conisbrough hospital, is Brown Owl at St Albans, and interest also extends to her father, who is a Scoutmaster.

In addition to Paul and Michael, Mr & Mrs Gregory have one other child, Peter, aged 3. The deepest sympathy will be extended to them in this tragic loss.
