It is with great sadness that we have to let you know of the unexpected death of Patricia MacLachlan RIP before Easter. Patricia played the part of Caiaphas in the 2014 production of ‘One Life’ One Passion’ (South Woodham Ferrers’ Passion Play) with great zest and aplomb. Patricia RIP and her family (mother and sister particularly) are in our thoughts and prayers
Patricia played the part of Caiaphas in the 2014 production of ‘One Life, One Passion’ (South Woodham Ferrers’ Passion Play) with great authority, zest and aplomb. Patricia was an enthusiastic and popular member of the cast. We had great times, including many laughs, during all the rehearsals and the two performances went smoothly. They made a great impact reaching a total audience of around 1200 people. It was good to get together again afterwards to celebrate a great team effort and Patricia was a tremendous contributor to the Play and supporter of her fellow cast members and the crew. We hope to continue the five-yearly productions and Patricia will be missed
Patricia’s funeral has taken place. A fascinating tribute was paid to her by a close friend. Patricia was a very talented lady including: an excellent school pupil; Oxford graduate in PPE (politics, philosophy & economics), a staunch advocate and worker for social justice in the UK and abroad, a talented teacher, an educational adviser in the UK and abroad, an OFSTED inspector, an amateur drama actor and a pilot. Her involvement in OLOP 2014 will never be forgotten .
Whilst everyone was sad at the suddenness of Patricia’s passing this was also a celebration of a great life of service and achievement.
Patricia will be buried Southport which is near where she was born and brought up in Liverpool
