Death of a retired colleague : Christina Barnes


It is with sadness and regret that we have to advise you of the death of Christina Barnes who died unexpectedly at the weekend, aged 73 years.
Many will recall Christina working in the Chief Constables office for many years, retiring in 2003 after 43 and a half years service.  Christina initially began her service as a typist at Houghton-le-Spring in 1959 before moving into HQ in the late 1960's and she remained in the Executive Secretariat until her retirement.
Funeral arrangements have now been confirmed as follows:
friends are welcome to join with family for a service at 10:45 on Wednesday 15th July 2015 in St Cuthberts Church, North Road, Durham.
St. Cuthbert's is near the Garden House Pub across from County Hall. There is a layby for parking to the east of the church on Framwellgate Peth (the A691) opposite the entrance to the DLI car park. Parking is also available on North Road at the west end of the church. For SatNav use the post code DH1 4NH. Additional parking is also available at the DLI Museum.
Christina will be hugely missed by her loving family and many friends.  Any messages of condolence for the family can be sent to Welfare ( who will ensure they are passed on to Christina’s sister and her wider family.
Our thoughts are with Christina's family and friends at this sad time.
