R.I.P - 31 DECEMBER 2020
MESSAGE KINDLY SHARED BY PETER CLARE
To All Horizons:
It is with great sadness that I have to report that our lovely friend, Sharen Hassall, passed away on 31 December 2020.
A very brave lady who enjoyed our events so much. Sharen was in her hospice after spending Christmas at home with John and slipped away peacefully at 2.45am.
This really breaks my heart to write this,
Sharen will be sadly missed by all of us.
MESSAGE KINDLY SHARED BY JOHN HASSALL
May I thank all of you who have posted such beautiful comments about my dearly beloved wife Sharen Hassall and also those who have contacted me directly.
She battled for the past ten years with both dignity and strength.
She was loved by all who had the good fortune to meet her.
MESSAGE FROM MARTIN & ANNE RIDLEY
A truly beautiful human being who we had the privilege and pleasure to be in contact with over the last couple of years.
Sharen was so very brave and kept us updated on her battle throughout this year. She was always so positive in her messages, she was a real inspiration.
Our last message with Sharen was on the 18 December when she kindly took the time to inform us that she was preparing for her last few days.
Anne and I were in tears when we received this message and we are so extremely grateful that she gave us the opportunity to let her know how much we were thinking of her and her family.
Sharen touched our hearts.
Anne and I are devastated for John and Sharen’s family and friends on Merseyside.
A very very sad day!
Our deepest condolences to everyone who knew this lovely lady.
We are heartbroken.
Martin & Anne
MESSAGE KINDLY SHARED BY SHAREN HASSALL
19 September 1977 - Chester branch as a shy 16 year old straight from school.
I spent 9 happy years there making some lifelong friends who I’ve been able to reconnect with having moved back to Chester four years ago.
From Chester I transferred to Acocks Green Branch, Birmingham in June 1986 & moved to Bennett’s Hill Area Office in April 1990.
I joined Midlands DMC the following year working in Personnel until HR Connect was set up in Hemel Hempstead & I became part of the HRBP team reporting into Canada Square.
For the remainder of my time with HSBC I worked in various roles within HR, based at an office in Birmingham but travelling to Canada Square every week as part of the Graduate Recruitment team & latterly as PA to the Senior HRBP.
In August 2009, after 32 years service, I was made redundant (working in HR was no protection from this fate!!).
I have many fond memories of my time with HSBC & through Horizons I have been able to track what has happened to a number of people I had lost touch with so thank you Martin for all the hours you put in on making this site so successful.
