Shirley Heard - In Memoriam
On 27 June 2004 after a long fight with cancer
Vice-President 1988 - 1998
Honorary Life Member 1989
The G&S Society has lost a dear friend and devoted member, who showed great dignity and courage through her long illness.
Apart from her service on the Board, Shirley ran the Costume Co-ordinations for many G&S Shows. Her skill with style, colour and look, with great attention to detail was second to none.
Although in recent times, she was too ill to take an active role in the Society, her interest never waned.
She will be greatly missed. Our love and best wishes to Greg, Andrew and their families.
Is life a boon?
If so, it must befall
That Death, whene'er he call,
Must call too soon.
(W S Gilbert - The Yeomen of the Guard)
