We are sad to record the passing of Kathleen Johnson, former local government officer with Lincolnshire County Council in the County Secretary's department. Kathleen was a member of the Lincolnshire Local History Society and followed SLHA from its inception. She was, in addition, a member of the Local History Committee for most of that time.
With her vast knowledge of Lincolnshire and her wonderful memory she was a most valuable member and ever ready to make her contribution. Kathleen was the one that checked the dates, the facts and speedily corrected all errors. Over the years she has helped with numerous people and organisations with bits of research but always refused to go into print herself; nevertheless, she shared her findings with everyone.
Kathleen Johnson's funeral will be at Lincoln Crematorium on Friday 23 August at 1.50 pm.
