13.6.1966 – 26.12.2020


It is with sadness that we report the death of Paula. Paula was born in St Mary’s Cray to Daphne and James Haydon. She was known as the “wild one” by her school friends!

She had three children; Chris married with 2 children, Jayden and Danielle; Charlie, engaged with two children, Oliver and Tommy and Kaylie with no children. Kaylie has been in the Navy for 10 years. Her lovely partner John is also in the Navy. John kindly read, what Kaylie had written, at the funeral

Paula moved to Oliver North and became a member of West Farleigh Church,

Paula was a great cook and was only too happy to bake for church teas, she made amazingly light scones! One of our editors, Stephen Norman, said, the cupcakes Paula had made for the teas at Smiths Hall Open Day, were the best he had ever tasted.

She was quite open about being a recovering alcoholic, with 11 years of sobriety. It was on this journey that she found her faith. She was very proud of her achievement and went on to sponsor other people, going through the AA course.

Paula met George in the fellowship and he quickly became a big part of the family. They were extremely happy together.

Paula battled with and overcame breast cancer with a positive attitude. It was sad that cancer came to her again, but she continued to fight it to the end, with that positive attitude, taking on day at a time.

We shall miss Paula in the village, she had many friends. We shall remember her with fondness. Our thoughts are with George and her family.
