Beverley Hudson

2nd of December 2004

In St Paul’s Church on 27 October, a Service of Thanksgiving led by the Rev Paul Manuel was held in memory of Beverley Hudson. The church was full of family, friends and neighbours who had come together to celebrate her life. Beverley had been courageously battling against illness for 7 years and passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on Saturday 16 October.
Beverley and her husband, Dave, moved into Croft Lane in 1982. It was here that their children, Richard, Gareth and Fiona, have grown up. When the children started at St Paul’s School, Beverley volunteered to serve on the school PTA, helping fund-raise and was often seen face-painting at summer fairs. The family were members of Chipperfield Tennis Club, taking part in games and tournaments. Beverley continued to support the club as a spectator when ill health prevented her from playing.
Beverley was a willing helper, on many occasions using her time and talents within the community, fulfilling the needs of people calling on her expertise, the Chipperfield Theatre Group (CTG), St Paul’s Church and many other groups.
Beverley’s cake making in particular became famous. Her cake creations, assisted by Dave, became sculptured masterpieces, perfect for the occasion and admired by all.
Beverley’s first project for the CTG was to design and create the set for their first pantomime, Aladdin, in 1991. It was such a success that she was called on for virtually every occasion after that, and would still be seen during the actual production assisting performers back stage with hair and make-up!
St Paul’s Church was an important part of Beverley’s life, helping with children’s groups – Whizz Kids, Holiday Club, Pathfinders and family services. In more recent years, she joined the weekly flower rota and produced beautiful arrangements at the flower festivals.
Beverley was a very private person who humbly gave so much to so many and enriched the lives of those who knew her. She was much loved by her friends and will be sorely missed.
