FATHER Terry who died was born in Portsmouth on June 9, 1907.
He joined the Benedictine Order and was ordained on January 24, 1940.
Father Terry was incardinated in the Diocese of Portsmouth in 1948 while he was serving as an Assistant Priest at St Joseph's, Guernsey.
In 1952, he moved to the parish of The Sacred Heart, Waterlooville, where he remained for one year before moving to St Patrick's, Woolston.
In 1956, Father Terry became Parish Priest of the Parish of Netley Abbey where he remained for ten years. In 1966 he became Chaplain to St Mary's Abbey at Haslemere and remained there until it closed in 1976 when he retired to the Convent of St John at Kiln Green, Twyford. FATHER Charles Verhaart, a Dutch Assumptionist who died, spent all of the forty-two years of his priestly life in England.
His first appointment was to the Noviciate where, for seven years, he helped with the training of the novices.
There followed nine years at the Becket School, Nottingham. There he was in charge of the finance, catering and other material needs of the Community and School.
In 1965 he was assigned to parish ministry, and was for ten years from 1968 Parish Priest of Charlton, London.
Under his care a fine organ was installed in the church and the Parish Social Club was considerably developed. In 1978 he went to Newmarket.
Nearby, at Kirtling, he lived as Priest in Charge of the little church until his death.
JOHN Rodgers, of Storrington in West Sussex writes: "My aunt, who was a well known and well loved member of the Sacred Heart Church, Morton, Merseyside died after a short illness on January 30.
She was in her 84th year and was one of the original staff of teachers at the Sacred Heart School, Moreton, when it opened in 1935.
She was a sympathetic teacher who made every anxious pupil on the first day at school settle happily into a welcoming atmosphere.
