Liz Dawn remembered by Coronation Street co-stars at funeral

Coronation Street stars Samia Ghadie, Helen Worth and Nigel Pivaro were among those paying tribute to Liz Dawn at her funeral on Friday (06Oct17).
The actors looked sombre in black as they arrived at Salford Cathedral in Manchester, England, to remember their co-star and friend, who died on 25 September after a lengthy battle with emphysema, a lung condition that causes shortness of breath.
Samia was accompanied by husband Sylvain Longchambon as they made their way into the cathedral, while Helen looked smart in a black trouser suit and Nigel, who played Liz’s character Vera Duckworth’s onscreen son Terry in the soap, clutched a flower and an order of service as he headed inside for the mass, being led by Father Brendan Curley.
The service saw Liz remembered by close friends and family, while musical interludes included two of the actress’ favourite hymns, Here I Am, Lord and Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.
It was followed by a private committal which was attended solely by Liz’s family and closest friends.
