Lion Roderic McNeill MJF, now of Nailsea Lions Club in 105SW, and lately of Northampton Lions Club, regrets to announce the death of his wife Mary, who passed away very peacefully on 16th July 2012 in a Nailsea Care Home aged 84.
Though Mary was not a ‘club member’, as a dedicated ‘Lion’s wife’ she was treated as such, as are all the wives of the small Northampton club. Mary raised charity funds on several occasions with cookery talks, flower arranging sessions and a fashion show. Always ready to help collect and pack food parcels, rattle tins and arrange OAP parties, Mary suffered Alzheimer’s disease for four years before succumbing to a stroke whilst in care.
Lion Roderic joined Northampton in 1977 and prior to transferring to Nailsea Lions in 2011 was President three times and Treasurer for 12 years.
