In Skegness, Lincs, an honor guard was formed to hear from a retired secretary, Jeannette Field, who also lost her life after contracting the coronavirus.
Field, 71, died of Covid-19 while her husband Robert, 70, sat in a coma after she was also hit by the deadly virus.
The retired NHS secretary devoted her very professional life to health care and helped raise thousands to buy a scanner to help lung and heart patients.
Tragically, while her husband Robert died in a coma for his life, Jeanette was hit with the virus and died on April 4.
Robert remains in the hospital and was unable to attend his wife's funeral on Monday, April 27 so his family filmed the ceremony.

Order of service books were made available to neighbors and flower petals were distributed along the borders.
After a few minutes, while neighbors, family and friends expressed their respect, the hearse moved off as a lonely trumpet piece titled & # 39; a Silencio & # 39; was played by her friend Stephen Walker.
Jeanette & # 39; s daughter-in-law Lisa Field said: & # 39; Jeannette was a selfless and caring woman who devoted most of her life to the NHS.
& # 39; She worked for over 25 years, worked her way up to sister department and was occasionally in charge of two departments at The Manor Hospital and George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton.
& # 39; When her husband, Robert Field, of 28, was moved to Skegness on business, they decided to stay and made the resort their home.
Sadly, Robert Covid-19 contracted on Friday, March 27 and was taken directly to
Pilgrim, but within 12 hours his health deteriorated and he was put in an induced coma and ventilated.
& # 39; Jeannette was very concerned about Robert and was even told that he fought for his life on a few occasions.
& # 39; Eight days after Robert's own fight began with Covid, who kept him in a coma for almost four weeks, his beloved wife Jeannette had died at home from the terrible virus.

& # 39; Robert is now out of danger and making positive steps toward a full recovery and, when he was once strong enough, he was told by his daughter Sarah that Jeannette had died. He is passionate. & # 39;
Jeanette worked for more than ten years as secretary to Dr Cyril Nyman, a heart specialist at Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Lincs.
He described Jeannette as & # 39; an incredible woman & # 39; and together, they have raised thousands to buy a scanner to help heart and lung patients.
The family has now written to their local MP to lobby Parliament to ensure GP surgeons and funeral directors have sufficient PPE.
Lisa said, & # 39; The family believes this is the continuing legacy of & # 39; a proactive measure that Jeannette took in her own career as a servicewoman of the NHS. & # 39;
