Daphne Jacob

Very sad news that Daphne passed away on 30th December after being cared for at the Sue Ryder Duchess of Kent Hospice for end of life support.

Daphne started bowling in 1986 and over the years became a member of Peppard, Stuarts, Shiplake and Rivermead Bowling Clubs. 

During her time at Shiplake she was a very active supporter of all club activities, a member of their Bar Committee and one of their top skips - Daphne always had a generous comment to make about her team's bowling. All remember her as lovely to bowl with and really helpful and kind with new players. 

She secured sponsorship for the Shiplake Club from her place of employment: Budgens Supermarket at Emmer Green.

She was a keen supporter and county player of Bowls Oxfordshire Ladies for many years and represented the county at Leamington in the nationals. 

She was larger than life and will be sorely missed on and off the green.

Her funeral will take place at 11.30am on 18 January at the Reading Crematorium, All Hallows Road, Reading RG4 5LP.

The family have requested that attendees wear bowling uniform, please. (Reminder:  greys is the county norm now for funerals, plus county shirts and blazers)
