A community champion whose adventures included a chance meeting with Adolf Hitler has died.
Over the years, Ariel Crittall, 97, devoted her time to numerous causes in the Braintree area, including The Friends of Essex Churches, the Citizens Advice Bureau and Braintree Museum Trust.
Ariel – whose husband John, of the famous Crittall Manufacturing Company proposed to her just ten days after meeting – lived at Park Hall, Great Bardfield.
She had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease and died on September 25 with her family around her.
