In Memorium

We would like to rememberfriends who have passed away. Our thoughts are with their families.

Irina Woods

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Irina von Arnim Woods, one of the real characters of Oxford Bridge Club. She died peacefully in her sleep on Saturday 2nd March, following a lengthy battle with lung cancer. As per her desire, Irina will be laid to rest in a small family affair, alongside her sister in her beloved Corsica. Irina's final days were spent at Sobell House hospice, with her son, Sacha, at her side. Sacha has gone out of his way to compliment the incredible care that she received at Sobell House and he asks that any donations in her memory be made to Sobell House Charity: Donate to Sobell House Hospice and End of Life Care in Oxford.

Susan Fletcher

Susan Fletcher died in the John Radcliffe Hospital on 6th November. Susan was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in July 2021. As well as devastating news for Susan and Brian, this was a sad blow for OBC, as she had just taken on the role of Education Secretary a role she would have discharged with distinction. She was also instrumental in setting up OBC online bridge an initiative which undoubtedly secured the survival of the Club. In spring 2022 Susan raised over 75,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association when she walked the Pennine Way with many friends, family and fellow bridge club members. Susan never lost her positivity and enthusiasm for life and, as well as being a trustee for the MNDA, continued to play bridge several times a week using eye-gaze technology.
