Tired and weary you made no fuss, but tried so hard to stay with us

Claire Unsworth

“Tired and weary you made no fuss, but tried so hard to stay with us”


In her own home on the 31st August cared for by her family, Claire passed away aged only 64 years. The beloved wife of Alan for 45 years, much loved mum of Kerry, Lisa, Simon and Kieran. Treasured granny of Jade, Brandon, Sienna, Sam and dearest sister of Rosa, Jonathan, Simon, Marie and the late Roger and Martin.

Claire’s early life was spent in Tarporley and after meeting Alan they moved to Crewe, marrying in 1972. They had 4 children and 4 Grandchildren who will miss her dearly. After working at Holland’s Cheese Factory and Asda for a while, the last 10 years of her working life was spent at Rope Garden Nurseries. Claire was a keen gardener, so she was happy amongst the flowers and shrubs.

Holidays in Spain and caravan holidays in North Wales with her love of cats, leave the family with many cherished memories.

Claire’s funeral will take place on Monday 11th September in Crewe Crematorium Chapel at 2.40pm followed by cremation. Information about donations has not been received yet, please contact the office.

    Mum , thank you for being there for me and looking after Brandon and Jade you know I love you so much. I cant believe you have gone I used to love going shopping with you in Nantwich and getting dinner from Chatwins and sitting on the square and having a laugh with you and feeding the pigeons even though we were not supposed to !! I miss you so much already and its less than a week since you have gone. We will look after the cats and Brandy dog, your Boy as you called him. So don’t worry about that and Leo sat on you on your hospital bed all the time since you were in it, he knew you were not well. I hope you are still watching over us which I’m sure you are making sure we are all ok. love you mum from kerry, Brandon and Jade and dogs and cats xxxxx

    I hadn’t known you for very long but from the time I became friends with Lisa 7 years ago, you made me feel very welcome and part of your ‘clan’. We had some good old natters at your family BBQs and you always made me giggle.
    My fondest memory of you is when I pulled into a parking space in Nantwich, got out of my car and this voice behind me said ‘That cow is driving my car!’ 2 weeks later you had bought a mini the same as mine!
    I wish I had known you for longer but sadly it was not to be.
    You are at peace now Claire and I’m sure you will be drinking your Lambrini and keeping an eye on all your clan from up there.
    I will look after Lisa and Sienna as best I can I promise.
    God Bless xxx
