It is with the deepest sadness that we have to inform you of the death of one of our dearest and most valued members of the group – Jean Ketley. Jean was taken ill last year and passed away at home on New Year’s Day this year.
She has certainly left a huge hole in the FoSP group. A stalwart , never shying away from hard work, always making the group smile and leaving special memories with each and every one of us.
Whatever was happening in the park, be it a litter pick; planting bulbs; a major event or simply a health walk – Jean was always there, even when she wasn’t well. She is probably best known for her job taking registrations for the annual Hook a Duck championships and also at the Santa Dash.
She always made us laugh at FoSP meetings with her anecdotes. Her repertoire at the FoSP Christmas party – singing along to Ron’s piano playing of the Christmas Carols is unrivalled, she was always game for a laugh.
She will truly be missed by all our group and to ensure her memory lives on in the park, we are organising a crowdfunding appeal to buy a native memorial tree. If you would like to contribute you can follow the link. Thank you very much on behalf of the group, and Ron and his family.
Our thoughts are with Ron and his family.
