Bridget Mary Deaton Libby, 86, was called home to God on Monday, April 19th, 2021. She was a loving and supportive wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was also a devoted Christian and a good friend to many.
Her strong faith and love of family nurtured her throughout her life.
Bridget was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1934 and emigrated to England after the war. She worked in a Garrard Engineering factory in Swindon, England where she soldered high quality gramophone turntables. She met and married her husband in 1954 when he was serving in the USAF at an airbase in England.
Bridget was strong willed, wise, and compassionate. You always knew where you stood with her, and she was direct with her opinions and ideas.
She was enthusiastic in her passion to help others, and worked tirelessly to make life better for those in her family, congregation and in the community she lived in. She tirelessly knitted prayer shawls for ailing parishioners and fabricated custom rosaries for the parish.
