Rest In Peace Irene Dodd –

It is always a sad time when someone you know passes away. Life is always tough for the family they leave behind. It’s been reported on Saturday that Irene Dodd has sadly slipped away.

Irene was a community champion, she had a great feeling for our community. She held many roles across a whole range of activities. She will be remembered for her work with the Police Liaison Committee, The Tenants and Residents Association. Her affiliation with the former Danesmore Park school. Plus many other organisations and charities. Irene will also be remembered for her Jam making, and her monologues! Both Mary and I wish to send sympathy and condolences to Irene’s family and friends. She made her mark in our community and she joins a long list of other ‘Big Characters’ that Ashmore Park and Wednesfield have lost in these last few years. Rest In Peace.
