Funeral Arrangements

The service will be held at St Hughs Church, Old Brumby at 12 noon on Wednesday 21st February 2024. Graveside service and reception immediately following at Woodlands Crematorium, then on to the Wortley Hotel.

It is with great sadness that we have been advised that Brenda has left us for the big Bridge Club in the sky. 

Brenda together with Ted were the keenest Bridge players and over the years travelled to tournaments ail over the country. Closer to home they were members of the local Bridge community. They became members of Scunthorpe and District Bridge Club, which was amalgamated, in 1972, from the various clubs in the area. 

Brenda was a prominent local musician, and particularly the piano for nearly all her life. She was keen to promote Bridge in Scunthorpe, and using her teaching and bridge skills, and after obtaining the English Bridge Union teaching diploma, she started educating hundreds of new and improving Bridge players at the Scunthorpe Club. This started in 1986 and she continued for over 30 years. 

Brenda wrote weekly articles for the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph, while it existed! 

In 1987 Ted became the Scunthorpe Club’s Secretary and Brenda joined the Committee. Having declined many requests to become the Club’s President, she spent many years as the Vice President, a role she kept until, with advancing years, she left the Committee and reallocated her teaching commitments. 

Some years ago, Brenda instigated the Thursday Graduation Group, where her improving students could play with more experienced players without needing to be concerned about the more competitive nature of the main club. This helped hone the skills of some of the best players in the club as well as in the County.  

She was also an active member and later President of a ladies’ group, The Thirty Club, which ran for many years. Her occasional Saturday night social evenings were another success – who could forget Brenda’s Bingo? 

She passed away in hospital early on Sunday morning (14 January 2024). 

Brenda has left a legacy of service to our bridge community that will not be rivalled. 

Our sincerest condolences go to Ted, their two sons, Ian and Phillip, and their families. 

THANK YOU and RIP, Brenda.
