 16.3.2022 Spring Social


 

Michael, his daughter Julia and Breta's Daughter Paula have asked me to express their thanks and gratitude to those members of both Ringwood and Verwood Bowling Clubs, who attended Breta's funeral last week.

They were very pleased that so many members were able to support the family in saying their last farewells to Breta, by being with them on the day.

Michael also thanks all of the members of both clubs for their friendliness and companionship, shown to him and Breta throughout the years.

Our deep condolences, thoughts and best wishes go out to Michael, family and friends. 

Breta will be sorely missed by our members.

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Breta Miller passed away peacefully last week. Breta had been poorly for some time and last season could only manage short roll up's with Michael, weekly, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Breta and Michael have been playing bowls at Ringwood for some 18 years and Breta was very active playing in league teams, friendlies and competitions. She also played Short Mat at Verwood and also enjoyed and was very good at Ballroom and Country & Western Dancing.

Breta's funeral will take place at 11.00am on Friday 11th February at Bournemouth Crematorium.

All are welcome to attend the funeral but please, NO Suits and Black Ties, just casual dress or club shirts.

There will be no wake and it is family only after the funeral.

Our deep condolences, thoughts and best wishes go out to Michael, his family and friends. 

Breta will be sorely missed by our members.
