Death of a retired Police Officer - Sgt 611 Margaret Anderson

It is with regret that we announce the death of retired Sgt 611 Margaret Anderson from Croxdale, who died on the 18th May aged 78 years.

Margaret retired from Wear Valley in 1984 following 28 years service. She had previously served at HQ, Durham, Spennymoor and Bishop Auckland.
She was a dearly loved wife of Joe Anderson.

I remember how devastated Margaret was when her beloved "Police Womans" department was closed down and "her girls" went onto the shift system. She always thought of others first. When Sgt Maurice Davies was working his last night shift before retirement Margaret organised a magnificent five course dinner, on candle lit tables in the Town Office / Comms room, so the entire shift could celebrate the occasion well knowing that Maurice would not be having a leaving do. She catered for about 12 of us on a tiny two ring stove and oven in the "T" room.
