Maggie Sullivan

by Yvonne Hellin-Hobbs | News

It is with great regret that we mourn the passing of Maggie Sullivan, who died peacefully on Nov 30th. Maggie was a well-loved personality in the village and was very involved with the Bishopsteignton Museum in earlier years. She was responsible for building the model of Bishopsteignton that was on display at the Village Festival this year, she and her husband John were involved in the original twinning of the village and in the years leading up to the Millennium celebrations she filmed, directed and edited a wonderful film on the 2000 year history of the village, featuring many village characters.

Maggie very kindly gave permission for BH to publish this film on the website, and we shall be doing so in the very near future. We also have an audio memory of John Sullivan on the website, which Maggie was unaware of before we published it, and was very moved to hear. We hope this will represent a fitting memorial to Maggie, a creative and inspiring woman who will be much remembered and sorely missed.
