A wake will be held af­ter the ser­vice at the Queen’s Head pub in Kingsnorth, which ev­ery­one is in­vited to. Peo­ple are asked to wear red - Ms Oven­den’s favourite colour.

Rel­a­tive Keith Oven­den said: “Our fam­ily would like to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to all of Max­ine’s friends, and this means ev­ery­one and any­one who knew Max­ine, who would like to be present to pay their re­spects and to give Max­ine the send off that she de­serves.

“The wake will be held af­ter the cer­e­mony at the Queen’s Head, again the fam­ily would like to em­pha­sise, that ev­ery­one means ev­ery­one, and all are wel­come to at­tend.

“Many of you may not have known but Max­ine’s favourite colour was red, there­fore out of re­spect and for Max­ine, if you can wear some­thing red it would be very much ap­pre­ci­ated.”

Max­ine Oven­den died sud­denly this month
