Madge Clarke

Madge Clarke of Hawthorn Farm died on January 5th 2020 at the grand age of 98. She and husband Doug came to Bickleigh from Berkshire when Mr Berkely-Owens bought Bickleigh Castle in the 1950's. She will fondly be remembered as the Cook at Bickleigh school. She loved being with the children and filling them up with second helpings! She often told the tale of pupils leaving class to come to the kitchen asking if there were left overs. If the teacher came looking for them she would hide the children in the kitchen cupboard!

Our condolences to sons Mike and Roger. The funeral will take place at Exeter Crematorium on Friday January 31st at 2.30pm. Family flowers only.
