She went on to have two children of her own and became a stay at home mum and housewife, as Brian often worked away.

She later ran a successful Bed and Breakfast from her home, with visitors returning year on year, as she made it a home from home.

Blod, as she was often known, loved to walk, and would often be seen chatting to the locals and visitors alike.

Blodwen held her family close to her heart, and always took a keen interest in what everyone was doing, in particular her three grandsons.

Her funeral was held at Pisgah Baptist Chapel, Cresswell Quay on January 5.

The service was officiated by Rev David Gooding.
