It is with great sadness that we share the news that BODOA President Jean Thomas passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning 20th March 2019 at Farrar’s Hall Care Home, Huntingdon at the age of 94.
Jean was the daughter of BOD designer and builder Robbie Stone and indeed BOD number 1 Jean was named after her. She was always a wonderful supporter of the BOD fleet and even when her health began to fail she continued to keep abreast of our goings on. Unfortunately Jean was not been able to visit Brightlingsea due to bad health for the past few years but she often talked about her family life in the town and of time spent with her father at the James & Stone yard.
Jean’s funeral will take place on Monday 29t April 2019 at Noon. The funeral service and burial will take place at Barton Glebe Woodland Burial Chapel CB23 7BN. Family flowers only but donations can be made if desired to either the Alzheimer’s Association or RNLI West Mersea Lifeboat Station
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this most difficult time. Details of her funeral will be published as soon as they are available.
