The death in hospital last week of Miss Kathleen Mary (Kay) Clinch, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Clinch, 27, Priory-road, Newbury, was a great shock to her numerous friends and much sympathy goes out to the family.

Although Miss Clinch died at a comparatively early age—she was 36 last June—she had an extremely full life. Many of her interests centred around the Bartholomew Street Methodist Church with which she was connected all her life.

Teacher, Leader, Chorister.

From a scholar at the Sunday School, she became a teacher and was leader of the primary department at the time of her death. She always had a great fondness for children.  In the Church, she was a class leader, one of the earliest officials of the Youth Council and led the younger folk in the Junior Guild.  For 20 years she had sung in the Church choir. In fact, she lived for her Church and for her garden. She spent her holidays at various Methodist holiday houses, where she made many friends.

Educated at Newbury County Girls' School, Miss Clinch chose to join the Women's Land Army at the beginning of the war and remained in it for seven years. For the past six years she had worked in the farm and veterinary .department at Boots, chemists, of Northbrook-street, and always interested in animals, was ever ready to give advice as far as her knowledge permitted. She remained at work until within a month of her death, although she was away from June to October last year when she underwent two operations. Until a few months ago she was secretary of Newbury Women's Liberal Association for a long period.

85 Wreaths

The affection in which Miss Clinch was held was shown by the fact that over 160 letters of sympathy were received by the family and 8S wreaths at the funeral on Saturday.  Her brother, Mr. Norman Clinch, who lives in Dallas, Texas, U.S.A., flew home and although delayed by engine trouble at Moncton in Canada reached home just in time to attend the service  Barholomew Street Methodist Church.
