Sad Loss

Elizabeth 'Bill' Bradley
Passed Away on Wednesday 13th March.

The funeral was at Denia Crematorium on Friday 15th March.

We lost a very special lady. Many of the older members of our association will remember Bill. A lady with a fighting spirit and quick wit. Bill was quite small but she lit up the room when she walked in.

Bill was an avid gardener and belonged to a number of U3A groups.

Our thought and prayers are with Ian her son and Jackie her daughter.
