Alice Broad aged 104
The death of Alice, just three days after her 104th birthday, saddened her family and
Alice moved to Wilne with her family at the age oftwo, where she spent her
childhood and early days until her marriage to Bernard Broad in 1930 at St. Chad’s
Church moving then to Draycott and later to Breaston.
She worshipped throughout her long life at St. Chad’s. Sadly, her husband Bernard
died in 1984 and her son, Michael, just afterwards.
The funeral service at St. Chad’s was well attended and conducted by Gary Dundas,
who had known Alice all his life. Cremation was followed at Bramcote Crematorium.
Donations, in memory of Alice Broad, for the Friends of St. Chad’s amounted to £227.41.
The Friends Committee offer a sincere thanks to the family and to all who gave
