Maureen, after a long illness, died in her sleep at home on Tuesday May 11th. She was an excellent player and is pictured with her husband and bridge partner, Ron, holding just one of the many trophies she received.

Maureen was a stalwart of the Club and was one of the longest serving members. Over many years, together with Ron, she regularly attended weekly sessions and successfully represented the Club in teams and other events at the highest levels.  At the playing Table, Maureen always upheld the principles of good manners with her opponents through gentle rapport, offering advice when asked, and would display great empathy with those new to the game. The pair would regularly enjoy and become fully involved in the various social events in the annual Club calendar.  She was a very popular member and will be sorely missed.

Our sincere condolences are extended to her family, and friends. Messages of sympathy may be sent to Ron at 19 St Thomas's Close, Balby, Doncaster, DN4 9LG. Details of the Funeral arrangements will be posted later
