Death of last descendant of Father Stephen Hatherly - Severus - 15-09-2009 09:09 AM

Dorothy Eugenia Whitfield, nee Hatherly, (1921-2009) died yesterday morning, 14 September 2009 at her home in Appleby-in-Westmoreland, Cumbria. She was the devoted wife of David Whitfield, whom she married in 1970.

As the daughter of Eugene Bagot Hatherly, she was the last surviving descendant of Father Stephen Hatherly (1827-1905), the first Englishman ordained in the Greek Orthodox Church.

She was a medical missionary and health visitor. Memory Eternal !

As the priest who has been both honoured and blessed to place a lighted candle and a red Paschal egg at the grave of Fr Stephen Haherley for several years past I shall remember his last descendant in our prayers over these next weeks
