In loving memory of Josephine Tickle who sadly passed away on 10th May
The funeral service was held on Friday 11th June at St Mary’s Church, Hampton. Due to limited capacity (due to social spacing in the church), attendance was by invitation only. However the service was webcast live and details of how to access the video recording are provided below.
The service was followed by the burial at Teddington Cemetery, followed by a Wake at The Crown in Twickenham. Regrettably, government rules for a Wake limits attendance to 30 people so we had to make this by invitation only.
In lieu of floral tributes we invite you to donate to either of our chosen charities MacMillan Cancer Support or The Antonio Carluccio Foundation.
We have chosen Macmillan because they provided calm and helpful support when Mum needed it for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia.
We have also chosen The Antonio Carluccio Foundation because Mum was such a great cook and loved Masterchef. We want to be able to support young and disadvantaged chefs and make the world a better place through good cookery and food.
I didnt meet Jo very often, due to the very great distance between us but when I did she always gave me a very warm welcome and I always enjoyed the experience.
She was a very easy-going likeable person and will be greatly missed by her family.
Jo was a lovely, kind person, who cared about others. She will be greatly missed by her friends and neighbours.
I only knew Jo for a short time but she was one of the loveliest people I have ever met.
I had the privilege of knowing Jo for nearly 20 years. She was the best of friends – kind, generous, thoughtful and really good fun to be with.
In loving memory of a dear friend who looked after us well when we stayed and helped me and my husband out many times at London flower shows.
Jo was our neighbour for almost 20 years. She was very welcoming and always had a friendly word. We appreciated the interest she took in our family and will greatly miss her.

It is with great sadness but very fond memories that I have to now say goodbye to Jo. She left an indelible mark on my life and stood steadfastly by me through a very difficult time. I will never forget her kindness, her quiet strength nor her warmth. I only wish I could have repaid her for all she did for me. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and mother-in-law who really loved to feed her family with the most delicious meals. I think she must have had magic spoons and many a time I left the Tickle household quite a bit heavier than when I entered! She was also fond of coming round and bringing her delicious brownies or flapjacks which were pretty much irresistible. I will miss her humor and her wonderful wisdom and all our chats over a cup of tea.
I will miss you very much Jo but I will never forget you. You are in my heart forever.
All my love, Cara. xxxxx
I first met Jo in 1961 as a fellow student in Bedford College and later shared a flat in Kensington with her, Rosie and Elaine.Happy memories!
Jo was a lovely person-thoughtful and kind ,always putting the needs of others before her own. She always appeared calm and cheerful, coping with whatever life offered her.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
We knew Jo forever. Ben & Sarah were both born next door. From thereon we felt part of the family over the last 60 years.
Jo was a truly wonderful person and will be much missed by us both.

I have always enjoyed meeting up with Auntie Jose at family occasions – mostly weddings and latterly sadly funerals. As a child I can remember staying with her and Uncle Alec when we came down to visit London with Mum & Dad. I spent a lovely evening with her and Uncle Alec when I was working a few years back in Surrey, and was please to be able to entertain them in Lincoln when they visited a few years ago. I will remember Auntie Jose as a very warm and gentle lady that was always very interested in the family. I know that she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
I worked with Jo over a period of 25 years in various architectural practices and lastly in many departments of London Underground where we thought the gravy train might never hit the buffers! She was the most dependable, fun and hard-working colleague one could wish to have. We first met at some architectural librarian group in Richmond and helped each other out over many jobs over the years. Over grim files and lots of paper we never stopped talking. We lso enjoyed great days out. She will be much missed by all her family and friends.
Through work had known dear Jo for well over 20 years. Such a lovely gentle person with not a suggestion of malice in her. Lucky enough to have a number of lunches with her once both of us had finally retired, always good company, will miss her enormously.
I will always remember Jo as such a kind and friendly lady. She was a great friend to my mum, and a thoughtful and supportive godmother to us. She’ll be greatly missed by many.
Jo was the much loved Mum of a friend of mine, her son Ben. I had really only met her once for a conversation, and I found Jo to be a very down-to-earth practical lady, extremely intelligent, interested in many subjects and displayed a passionate concern for the welfare of her family.
Jo was such a warm, gentle lady with such a lovely family. As a kid, we always looked forward to visiting her, playing with Ben and walking on Sarah’s feet! She will be missed from this world, which was all the better for having her here. All our love.
