ONE of Suffolk's oldest inhabitants, Kitty Bizzell, has died at the age of 103.
Mrs Bizzell was the oldest person in her home village of Eye and kept her brain active by doing a newspaper crossword every day.
She was married to the late Harry and was mother of the late Ann Betteridge.
Mrs Bizzell was a very popular personality, with carers visiting her at her home each day and a rota of neighbours and friends dropping in to keep an eye on her.
Last July her younger sister and brother-in-law took her out for lunch at the Cornwallis Arms to celebrate her 103rd birthday.

Friends said then that the secret of her long life could be her regular tipples of sherry and soda in the mornings and just a tot or two or whisky at night.
Mrs Bizzell's funeral will be held at Ipswich Crematorium, North Chapel, at 11.30am on Tuesday January 15.
The request is for family flowers only, but donations if wished for St Elizabeth Hospice can be sent care of Rackham's Funeral Service, Stanley Road, Diss, Norfolk.
