With great sadness we must report the death of Joan Bridges, a long-time member of the St Boniface congregation. We offer our condolences to her son Michael and daughter Anne.
Joan was an enthusiastic supporter of Church life and events, and we have collected together a few photos from the St Boniface archive.
May she rest in peace.

Update 1 September 2019: we received the following message from Ann Genochio, Joan’s daughter:
My family and I were very moved by all the kind messages and letters of condolescence on the death of my mother Joan Bridges from members of the congregation at St Boniface.
Joan had worshipped there since 1947 when she moved to Antwerp on her marriage to Leslie Bridges and St Boniface had always been an important part of her life.
Her move to England was a big change for her but she was happy for the last 17 months in the care home and always delighted by frequent visits of her family.
Her funeral was held on the 21 st August at St Mary’s church Therfield and was attended by 45 people.
