FOR many years she was committed and dedicated to making Hartlepool a better place - supporting thousands along the way.
Town dignitaries, family and friends gathered at St Patrick’s Church, in Owton Manor Lane, for the funeral of Councillor Cath Hill.
Coun Hill, an independent representative of the Seaton ward, died aged 76 at the weekend after a battle with cancer.
Father Seamus McGivern, who carried out the touching service, said: “Her life was a vocation, a vocation to make the world a better world.”
