"It is with a great degree of sadness that the Board have to advise Members of the death of 'Mary Bullmore'.
Mary passed away peacefully on Monday afternoon, 11th September, having lost her battle for life, for which she put up the most fearsome of struggles.
Mary was a long-standing Member of our Club and was known to the vast majority of past and present Members.
She was quite unique in that she combined her competitiveness at the bridge table with an effervescent personality and a friendly face, but at the same time she still had a strong determination accompanied by a resolute approach to play a skilful game of bridge.
Many of us will have witnessed all those attributes and she will be so sadly missed.
Mary's funeral arrangements are as follows:
Funeral Service Friday 29th September 12.00 pm at The Abbey, Sutton Road, Erdington B23 6QL and Streetly Crematorium at 1.45 pm.
The Wake will be held at Walmley Golf Club; Brooks Rd, Wylde Green, B72 1HR,
at 3.00 pm.
