It is with sad regret that we have to inform you that Rowena Lilley sadly lost her long battle with illness on Saturday afternoon, 4th August 2013. As many of you know Rowena was Harold Allen’s partner and was for many years one of the clubs regular observers. In lots of cases, Rowena came along to trials and observed for many hours when her health was not at its best, she was a keen biker and regularly enjoyed road runs as Harold’s passenger.
I had never known a Rowena so I looked up the names dictionary definitions, it read ‘an intelligent woman, she is competent and confident, has high standards but keeps her expectations reasonable. She chooses her path in life, turns obstacles into challenges and meets her challenges head on, yet a Rowena is empathetic and never wants someone to feel diminished in any way after an interaction with her’ perhaps that’s why I never minded losing marks at her section?
Our thoughts go out to her loved ones at this very sad time, the funeral is planned for 11.20 on Tuesday 13th August at Scunthorpe Crematorium.
