It is so very sad to make you all aware of the passing of carpet bowls very own Rita Daniels on Monday last. Wonderful, exuberant, delightful, full of life, laughing, cajoling (when selling many thousands of raffle tickets), organiser, doer, great supporter of the fashion industry and a terrific supporter of carpet bowls – she had it all, she was it all. We will miss Rita greatly, indeed, she is irreplaceable.

David Schofield, SCBA President

As many of you will already know Rita was diagnosed with cancer in October and we are sorry to say that she passed away on Monday 18th February at St Elizabeth Hospice where she had spent the last few weeks.

Thankfully she was in no pain and had been asleep for the last few days and so went peacefully.

We would like to thank everyone for all the kind cards and messages we have received over the last few days and while Rita was ill.

The funeral was held at Seven Hills Crematorium on Tuesday 26th February.

We would ask you not to send flowers, but instead to please make a donation to St Elizabeth Hospice who we cannot thank enough for the incredible support they have given to both Rita and the family.

Mike, Paul & Claire
