It was reported in the BOP Times today that June Ross (wife of PDG Jim Ross) passed away on 6 February from her home in Christchurch. While a member of Tokoroa Club Jim Ross was District Governor of 993 in 1989 - 90 and he retired to Tauranga two years later and joined Tauranga Te Papa. He was a member of that club until he died.

In spite of her age, June was one of the more active wives the club had and certainly liked by everyone - a lovely person. June moved to Christchurch on the death of PDG Jim to be with her children.

I do feel it is important that our club (and our district) acknowledge this lady. Messages to: The Ross family, c/- 19 London Street Christchurch 8013

Messages to the Ross family C/- 19 London Street, Christchurch 8013. Special thanks to the caring staff at Christchurch Hospital and Diana Isaac Retirement Village. A celebration of June's life will be held at the John Rhind Chapel, entry from London and Whitmore Streets, on Monday, February 11, at 10.00am.
