It is with regret that we are informing you that Rosemary Willis died a few days ago.
Nick Hoskins was passed the following information by Jackie Foster (nee Stowell).
The date of her cremation is the is 29th June at the Bournemouth Crematorium for close family and friends at 10.45am, followed by a Church Service at St Mark's, Ramley Road, Pennington, Hants SO41 8GQ at 12.45pm to which you are invited. All are invited to refreshments afterwards at Lymington Town Sailing Club, Bath House, Bath Road, Lymington, Hampshire,SO41 3SE.
For my part (from Nick), I will remember Rosemary as an energetic sailor and TSC member who, as some will recall, last visited TSC on the occasion of the TSC 'Veterans Luncheon' in 2013. The fact that she, with her son Keith, took the trouble to visit us from the south coast knowing that she would be too tired to stay for lunch shows that, even in her 90's, she had great strength and determination and an equally great love of Thames SC and the members she knew there. As Keith wrote afterwards "mum absolutely loved meeting everyone".
Should you plan to attend her memorial and afterwards it may be helpful if her son Keith could be advised for catering purposes.
