Ivy was one of the very valued officers in U3A (Tawa) Organisation. She was for many years, the Coordinator of the Current Health Issues for Seniors keeping in touch with the very large group that attended these popular talks by Dr Cathy Stone.
She was an active participant in the Discussion Group, Garden Group, Opera, Travel Adventures, all of the many talks given by Michael Holland and Piano Recital.
For the last seven years, Ivy has been a mainstay of the U3A Singers as a most valued soprano. As a member of our choir, she would always be one of the first to welcome new members and to engage people in conversation, engendering that feeling of friendliness and belonging which has made the choir so popular.
Her death was so sad - and so sudden. Ivy will be greatly missed.
(At the time of writing we are aware of the passing of three other longstanding members: Lesley Meade, Bryan Thomson and Dave Belz. They wil be remembered on the site in the coming days.)
