Jean Jesty

Dear Members,

It is my very sad duty to have to inform you that our beloved Jean Jesty died suddenly on 31st December. This information was communicated to me by our Hon Treasurer (and Jean's close friend), Richard Geldard. It would appear that the circumstances are that she suffered a heart attack at home where she was discovered by her husband, Rob Weir and despite resuscitation attempts in hospital, she did not regain consciousness.

Funeral information will be circulated when available.

What a tragic end to the year.  We shall all miss her cheery presence at Court and in Committee and her joyful participation in our events.
A lovely life enhancing lady, who will be sorely missed.
