In Memoriam - Penny Davies
10 March 2013
Dear David Corden,
Further to my wife, Elizabeth Flanagan's phone call, here are the details she mentioned concerning Mrs Penny Gowling (stage name - Penny Davies). Penny died on the 20th January 2013 in the Bolton hospital after a short illness aged 92. She and her husband Tom Gowling- who pre-deceased her, were acting in theatre and television over many years.
I met Penny at the Crewe Theatre in 1958 when she joined the Folk Theatre company - which also included Glenda Jackson (as assistant stage manager!) and subsequently on many occasions in T/V productions in Manchester.There may be many like us in the Manchester area who remember Penny and Tom with great affection and may wish to add to this brief obituary.
