Here are the death announcements carried in the Bucks Free Press last week.

Roger ‘Podge’ Bradshaw

Roger passed peacefully in his sleep at home on May 6, 2021.

Chesham born and bred, now reunited with his beloved Audrey.

Will be much missed by Rick, Stuart, Bryan, Ryan, and family.

Pamela Eileen ‘Pam’ Goddard

Pamela Eileen Goddard (Pam) passed away peacefully on the April 16, 2021 in her home aged 90.

She will be buried at St Marys Church, Radnage on 18th May.  Due to Covid and the small size of the church, only her immediate family are asked to attend. It is hoped however that the situation will ease sufficiently by the Autumn to allow a larger gathering  to plant trees in celebration and memory of her.

Pam was a Director of the Desborough Cycle Works,  a motor cycle business in High Wycombe. She was tireless and unstintingly generous to those around her and as a mother to her children, grand-children and great-grand-children. Pam had a deep love of people and nature and will be greatly missed by many.

Rather than sending flowers it is asked that you improve your natural habitats by, for example, planting or putting up bird boxes. Please make any donations to the Sue Ryder Trust,  c/o Arnold Funeral Service Ltd, 891, London Road, Loudwater, High Wycombe Bucks HP10 9TB. Tel: 01494 472572.
