News

Maureen Mobley

Members will be saddened to learn that Maureen Mobley, a club stalwart for over 50 years, died in her sleep at the weekend. Maureen's bridge heyday was playing the Vienna club system (brought to this country by refugees back in the 30s and still licensed by the EBU) with her great friend Trish Holland and together they won many events, including the Avon pairs and the Wiltshire-Avon Congress pairs. Central to the system was that all hands over 17 points were opened 1NT irrespective of shape: opponents could never cope with that aspect.

Members will fondly recall Maureen's habit of looking at their convention card – this was in wistful memory of the Vienna system and opponents' regular failure to study her convention card.

After Trish's death Maureen played with several partners and enjoyed club success on a regular basis - indeed her last club outing was the day before she died, partnering Angela Gunning.

Maureen was a widow and a retired teacher and leaves three sons to whom we extend our heartfelt condolences.

Roger Karn


Postscript

Maureen's family kindly timed her funeral so that bridge players could toddle off from the wake at Combe Grove direct to the club and that is exactly what a large number of us did. The sons gave heartfelt eulogies to their mother and a granddaughter baked a fitting cake, as you can all see (right). RK

Congratulations to last week's winners ...
