Michele Wilde

10th June 2015

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Michele Wilde, of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

Michele was a great supporter of "Blues" right from the early days of the breed being imported into the UK. She founded the "Ridge Dean" herd in 1982 and along the way had great success, both in the sale ring, commanding some of the top prices year after year and in the show ring, where she was British Blue Premier Breeder of the Year 11 times.

She was a former Executive Council Member and was very well respected within our breed and the "Ridge Dean" Herd was renowned worldwide. Her enthusiasm and dedication were a true credit to her and she will be very sadly missed.

The funeral took place on Monday 15th June, at All Saints Church, Soulbury.

The Society has lost a very good friend and our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with her family at this very sad time.
