Angela Blencowe, who died aged 101, was born in Kidderminster Worcs. on IS Nov 1903, the youngest of six children. She proved an outstanding pupil at Kidderminster High School where she flourished academically and in the sporting arena where she played tennis, hockey and excelled in athletics. After obtaining her BA degree at Birmingham University she spent over thirty years teaching Latin and Sports at Stroud High School, eventually becoming deputy headmistress. She always declared her great love of teaching, and having fallen completely in love with the Cotswold countryside, was happy to remain there all her working life and for most of her retirement. For the last ten years she was blind and moved to a residential home near Bromsgrove, enabling her to be near four nephews and nieces and to take a special interest in the great great nephews and nieces! Her funeral at St Catherines, Blackwell, Worcs. was very much a celebration of her long and full life and was attended by many family and friends, who recalled her exceptional human qualities, her long devotion to her profession and her deep love of family. Angela's 100th birthday was recorded in this newsletter in Autumn 2003.

Rob & Susan McClenaghan of Annidale NSW and their son-in-law Dave are coming to terms with the loss of their eldest daughter Susan who died, aged only 20, and less than two years after her marriage.
