Albertine ("Atty") Carden

As many of you already know, my beloved wife Atty died on Saturday January 23rd. She had been discharged from hospital at the end of November to a nursing home specialising in end-of-life care where she was superbly looked after and remained her usual feisty self until the last few days of her life when she faded gently away and then died peacefully and painlessly in her sleep.

A non-religious funeral took place at Worthing Crematorium on February 8th. We held a celebration of her life in London on May 7th. 
I have written a brief biography of her fascinating life, mentioning her childhood in Holland during the war and how she became an orphan there before making her way to England. A copy is available from me.
