A memorial service giving thanks for her life and service will take place at Dursley Tabernacle Church on Saturday, January 13 at 12pm.
A former primary school teacher, Ms Kingham MBE, a well-known and much-loved Dursley figure passed away on Saturday 9th December 2017, at Henlow Court, Dursley.
In 1997 she was recognised locally by being presented with the Leslie D Gale award for "many hours willingly spent visiting the ill at home and in hospital". This was followed in 2011 when she was awarded an MBE by the Queen for services to the community in Dursley.
She was also an active part of the Dursley Tabernacle church, where a chapel was dedicated to her last year.
Ms Kingham MBE is photographed with Songs of Praise presenter Bill Turnbull whom she was interviewed for in 2013.
