Barbara Blond

We are sad to record the death of Barbara Blond, known to many in the village as "Mrs Blond" who taught for many years at Upton School until the school closed in 1961.  Barbara was born in West Hagbourne in 1920 and died at The Meadows Nursing Home in Didcot, aged 91.  Her whole life was devoted to teaching and raising her family.   A service of thanksgiving for her life was held at St Andrew’s Church East Hagbourne on 24th May.  Our sympathies go to her sons David, Philip and their families.
