It is my sad duty to let you know that Anne passed away in West Middlesex Hospital
on 5th November. She'd been ill for some time with different symptoms including not
being able to swallow as well as a a severe stroke.

Anne was coming up to her 86th birthday and her body was donated to science. .

Anne had been joint Head of Front of House as well as being an active Steward.
Many of you will remember her valuable contribution to getting rotas filled. She was
a great help to me when I took over Head of Front of House. She will be sorely

Harriet Parsonage remembers Anne:

It would hardly be possible to overstate Anne's contribution to Questors. She, with Eileen and Christine spent years turning our Front of House function into the well oiled machine it now is. They were our ambassadors. It was a hugely time consuming task. Remember those telephone calls every month?

She and her husband were among the founding fathers and dedicated supporters of the Questors Poetry circle as well. All this continued long after her health and mobility declined.

Anne, William and I were pals for years and spent many happy hours in the Grapevine. It is true I do not know a great deal about her beyond Questors and that would really be William's domain. Anne and I did attend the Monday literature class together for quite a few years. She was always an entertaining and erudite contributor.
