Death of B.CAHEN, one of the founders of the Franco-Brits.
... Read the full newstext
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bertrand Cahen, one of the founder members of the ‘Franco-Brits’, on Friday, March 3rd. Back in 1986 Bertrand regularly attended the weekly meetings on Thursday evenings at the " Bar de l’Univers". These meetings led to the development of the Conversation Group, held for many years in " La Charité ". Later he became secretary of the association and for many years helped Daphne Mahon during her years as President. The archives reveal the many interesting outings they organised during those years, with the help of a dynamic committee. Bertrand was the secretary at a time when the newsletter was prepared on a typewriter, photocopied and sent through the post… He also compiled a very useful booklet,"« Vivre en France - Living in France ", containing information for anglophones settling in the area. Bertrand continued throughout the years to attend events whenever he could, in more recent years participating in various celebrations and outings while fighting illness, accompanied by his wife Nicole Cahen-Moreau. In June 2022 he attended the Queen’s Jubilee, it was to be the last time that Bertrand would participate in a Franco-Brit event.
Our sympathy goes out to Nicole who was so attentive over the years. We wish his family our condolences.
If you wish you can send a message and it will be forwarded to Nicole.
The funeral is taking place on Thursday, March 11th at 2 pm at the crematorium in Orange.
Kind regards,
Marie-Jacqueline Ballagh, President.
