Brigg Blog was very sorry to hear that Nancy Walker Tague has died, aged 63. As a volunteer, she put a great deal of time and effort into charitable work, notably for the Brigg and District Veterans' Group, Soldiers Off the Street and Brigg in Bloom.
Nancy always endeavoured to help others, and we will miss our chats on a range of topics.
She helped to install the D-Day landing craft beside the A18 at the top of Wrawby Street in June 2019 to mark the 75th anniversary of the Allies going ashore on the beaches of Normandy in France - a pivotal feature of the Second World War.
This display received a special award from Brigg Town Council as part of that year's best-kept gardens and allotments competition. The presentations were made in the Angel Suite with Nancy receiving the certificate from Town Mayor Coun Sharon Riggall.
Brigg in Bloom, of which Nancy was a committee member, described her as a committed and passionate volunteer who touched the lives of many people.
Sarah Ryder, landlady of the Woolpack in the Market Place, paid tribute to Nancy online, saying she was a wonderful lady who did great work for charities "and helped me along the way" as she did many people.
Other local people who knew Nancy are posting tributes to her through social media.
