ST. CHARLES, Mo. – The Union Jack was draped outside with black pennant The English Store Thursday on Historic Main Street in St. Charles. The British grocery and gift shop said it took many calls after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The buyers shared their memories of the monarch. Sheila Killebrew has lived in England for a number of years and remembers waving to the Queen forty years ago.
“A whole bunch of us got together and walked over and stood there for what seemed like hours before their motorcade finally pulled by. It must be so sad. Even I’m sad after that last bit,” Killebrew said.
Others shared their thoughts on the death of an elegant and cherished lady.
“I admire the lady so much. She has accomplished so much in her 70 years. She’s worked her ass off for Britain and these people love her,” said Brenda Stehle.
“I don’t know too much about the royal family but I just wanted to offer our condolences to the family just because I have all the memories of hearing from them over the decades,” Catherine Turner said.
“Someone who was admired around the world and much mourned around the world,” said Glenda Nugent.
