Barbara Jane Tunnell
1965 - 202

It is with great sadness that we heard that Barbara, known at work as Jane, passed away in hospital on 7th December 2023 after a short illness. She joined Hendersons as a Youth Training Scheme employee, and has worked continuously for the business with great loyalty for the last 42 years.


She was a constant presence over all this time and saw many changes. We are all enormously grateful to have known her and benefitted from her generous and kind hearted nature. She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Peter and the rest of her family.


She made many friends amongst our clients, and we have a book of condolence at the Stockton practice for those of you who might wish to add a thought or memory.
