RIP Winifred (Cussy) Delaney
Derbyshire Gypsy Liaison Group was extremely sad to hear the news that Cussy Delaney had passed away. After the dreadful murder of her son, young Johnny Delaney(2003) the family became involved in an improved police training program and Patrick, Cussy’s husband attended the very first Pride not Prejudice event at Derbyshire police headquarters the following year in 2004. Sadly Patrick passed away far too soon, many say with a broken heart, but Cussy carried on, she was a stoic dignified woman ever mindful that the police saw Johnny’s killing as racist murder, however the justice system let her (and the police) down in not accepting this part of the crime, the last time she attended Pride not Prejudice was the last one held in 2010, where she received a lifetime achievement award. I was not able to go to London on October 13th for the special commemoration in St Paul’s Cathedral, but Cussy has often been in my thoughts, through the years; I lit my candle, I find I am lighting candles often lately and reflect on many memories. I have no doubt she is now a guardian angel, Love to all the Delaney family
