Here is a painting of her http://artuk.org/discover/artworks/florence-louise-breckinridge-18811956-lady-hesketh-and-her-eldest-son-thomas-fermor-hesketh-19101937-132490

She died at Easton Neston in 1856 and was buried at St Mary Easton Neston nr Towcester,Northamptonshire  pictures of church here http://www.hugha.co.uk/StMary/History.htm

The date given for her death is 4th March 1956 .http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=towcester&id=I14412

 I can't confirm that ( looked but couldn't find a newspaper report ) but her death was  certainly registered in Towcester in March of that year

HESKETH  Florence L (Baroness)  75  Towcester  3b 824  (from https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

 Just one point worth checking. It depends on the date  as to whether this is  the right Lady Hesketh  (you said  the foundation stone was laid 1920-30)  This lady's husband became baronet  on 19 April 1924, when  his father died. His mother  (Florence Emily Sharon)  who also died in 1924 was until then Lady  Hesketh  http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=towcester&id=I14407

Clearly the 1956 date is the correct one - she was 75.

The other was born c. 1860
Yes realise that. However,  in the  context of the previous question, It occurred to me that the date of the churches foundation needed checking, just to make sure this was the right one. (Wikipedia gives the range 1925-26 in the text  but then 1923 in the side box .If I were giving the talk on the Church I would want to check when the stone was laid )
