We are sad to report that longstanding member Arlene Fisher passed away peacefully at 8.30 a.m on her 79th birthday – 12 December 2018.
Arlene had been a committed Soroptimist since 1971. She served as Winchester Club President twice, in 1983 and 1995, and later as Programme Action Officer and then as Club Secretary.
In 1999-2000 Arlene was Regional President of Southern England.
Arlene will be sorely missed for her active participation and commitment to our organisation, strong views on programme action issues, her friendship, and her sense of humour. She had been a very regular attender and active participant at all Club meetings and events, until her failing health prevented her from doing so, which was a real frustration to her.
Our thoughts are with Ray, her devoted husband of 55 years, who has always been a great supporter of Arlene and all the Club’s activities.
The funeral arrangements for Arlene are as follows:
Monday 7 January 2019 11am at Basingstoke Crematorium, Manor Form, Stockbridge Road, North Waltham, RG25 2BA. We will all be wearing bright colours to celebrate Arlene’s life. Donations in memory of Arlene to the British Heart Foundation, please.
