|Death of Grace Spence
Obituary courtesy of Brian Myers, Club Chairman
It is with much sadness that I have to let you know that one of our members of many years standing, Grace Spence, has sadly passed away. Grace moved to Appleby to live a number of years ago but many of you will remember her as a stalwart of Bishop Auckland Bridge Club. She represented the club in the inter-club league on many occasions and won the Walker Bowl with Clarice Barker. She will be remembered not only for her skill at the bridge table but also for her cheerful and kindly nature. She encouraged me in my early (naive!) years at the Bridge Club and I found her advice always helpful. We send Grace’s family our condolences at this sad time.
