Thank you for everything Mum, I love you and I miss you. Gone but never forgotten. With all my love, Alastair xxx
In loving memory of Bridget Mary Smith who sadly passed away on 23rd January 2021.
She was a mother to two Children, Guy and Alastair and a Grandmother to Hannah. She was a kind and caring person and yet fiercely independent. She lived life how she wanted to and was very happy in her own company, as long as she had her beloved miniature Dachshund, Daisy, with her.
Born in Cornwall and raised in Kent, she lived in many places in the Middle East and Far East with her family before settling in Kent once again where she lived for nearly 30 years before moving to Calne about 15 years ago.
No matter where she has lived two things were important to Mum, friendship and feeling a part of the community. Wherever she has lived she has always found true friendship, some of these have lasted nearly 50 years. Through attending WI, joining a choir to being a playgroup assistant or even working behind a bar when she was younger she made herself belong to the community where she was living.
Mum faced a number of challenges and adversities in her life but due to her determined character she always got through them with the minimum of fuss.
She loved music (singing especially), gardening & walking with Daisy.
Loved by many, she will be sorely missed.
