Biddy Holden 1920 – 2017

Long term residents of St Breward will be saddened to hear of the death of Bridget (Biddy) Holden on 28th December 2017.

Biddy moved to Delabole in the bitter winter of 1947 with her husband who was to be the GP for St Breward, Camelford and Delabole for over 30 years and is fondly remembered by many: Biddy was Dr Holden’s phone answering service while also  bringing up three children. She was well known for her paintings and linoprints and had prepared many linoprints ready for the family to decorate her coffin which she had chosen to be  cornflower blue in colour! A lovely person – she will be missed by all her knew her.

A private cremation will be held this month and a Memorial Service will be held at St Endellion church later this year, date to be announced.
