It is with sorrow that I report that Mary Baker, Associate Member and wife of David (Bagsy) Baker, Founding Member, passed away at the family home in South Shropshire on 20th April 2016 surrounded by her family. Mary attended all the Reunions with Bagsy and even last year in Middlesbrough though she was really unwell, but that was Mary, always the first to ask how you were and certainly not dwell on her own health problems.
The Association mustered 13 Members, including the President and Lady Dalton, to attend the Cremation Ceremony in Shrewsbury on the 13th May and later in the Lord Hill Hotel for the Wake. A Wreath was laid and the Association Standard was draped on her coffin, all Association Members wore colourful buttonholes to support the wishes of the family.
Later in the evening a special get together of the Puckered Plum Club (PPC) was organised in a local Restaurant to toast the life of Mary.
