Sad news

I thought I’d pass this on from Jacquie Emerson, the BGLO. I don’t know how many of you knew Helen, but she was a dear and good friend of mine. Sad news indeed. Love and thoughts to her family.
Subject: Helen Ashburn

Some sad news – Helen Ashburn, the secretary of the Greater Manchester Branch for many years
died this morning – merciful release after a long debilitating illness.
Helen was much loved and will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.

When I have more detailed information I will let you all have it.
