RIP Sister Ann Playfoot
It is with great sadness that we share news of the death of Sister Ann Playfoot CRSS. Sister Ann died peacefully on the morning of Sunday 6 September 2020.
After a series of admin jobs, Ann gained a degree in History from Kent University. She then joined the Community later on in life and was professed in 1990. She particularly enjoyed her years working in the Prep School at New Hall where she was one of the first team of 7 who reinstated the Prep under the leadership of Gerry Hudson in 1995.
After leaving New Hall in 2005, Sr Ann moved to Melbourne and greatly enjoyed estate and parish life. She was a founder member of the WOW Cathedral group in Chelmsford and very much valued her ecumenical links. People remember Ann’s determination as she battled against a series of illnesses and disabilities in her later years, without ever losing her sense of humour, kindness and deep faith in God and in the goodness of humanity.
