A community stalwart who spent a lifetime helping vulnerable people in the borough has passed away.
Former Brent council worker Miriam Green, 66, lost her life on August 15, prompting emotional tributes from numerous members of the community.
Miriam joined the local authority's social services department in the mid-1970s as a children's care worker, before moving to help elderly people in Brent.
Later in her career, the Kilburn resident became a senior practitioner at a children's home in Willesden and took early retirement in the early 1990s.
Miriam dedicated much of her spare time to organisations involved with housing and disabilities in Brent.
She was an executive member of Willesden Free Church Housing Association, Learie Constantine Centre in Willesden, Brent Community Transport, and Brent Association of Disabled People.
The dedicated carer also started the South Kilburn Toy Library and arranged summer holidays for the South Kilburn playscheme.
In a statement her two daughters, Pauline and Sandra Green said: "We are honoured to have had such a wonderful, caring, humanitarian mother whose purpose in life was to provide a better service for the young, old and disabled people in Brent.
"She will be tremendously missed."
With her range of voluntary commitments, Miriam also found time to chair Brent Housing Partnership's Disabled Forum, James Stewart House and William Dromey Tenants' Association and sat on the board of the Brent Partnership for Older People Project.
Martin Cheeseman, Brent Council's Director of Housing and Community Care, said: "I knew Miriam for many years and she always distinguished herself as a servant of the community in Brent. She was active well into her retirement in helping to improve the health, wellbeing, and life chances of many people from across the borough.
"She was well-respected by many people in the department as a great professional and will be missed by many staff."
Miriam came to Britain in 1962 from Jamaica, and married her late husband Noel in 1965.
She is survived by her brother, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Her funeral service will be held on Saturday September 6 at the Kilburn Christian Fellowship Church, in Aldershot Road, at 10am.
The burial will be at Paddington Old Cemetery, in Willesden Lane, at 11.30am, and there will be a reception at Fortunegate Community Hall, in Willesden, from 1pm.
