Remembered with Affection - Bridget Jackson (V 1950)

23 Apr 1933 - 3 Oct 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Bridget Jackson on 3 October. She was 87 years old.

Bridget had been suffering from vascular dementia and her general health had been gradually deteriorating for some time. Sadly, she suffered from a brain haemorrhage and did not pull through.

Bridget was an intensely private and independent person. She lived in Winchester and the environs all her life, as did her mother before her.

She was a devoted animal lover and supportive of their charities, with dogs and horses being her favourites. 

Her grandfather Charles Breadmore, based in Stockbridge, was one of the leading sweet pea growers in the UK in the early 1900s and Bridget shared his love of gardening.

Last year, she was delighted to be able to fulfil her wish of donating her grandfather clock to St Swithun’s in memory of her dear friend Nancy Collins (who she regularly holidayed with in Norway). It is currently sitting in the Harry Potter reading room adding to its authenticity.

Bridget did not want a church service and her ashes will be interred in the Memorial Garden at Chesil House where her name will be included in the Book of Remembrance.
