Melinda and Wendy
It is with great sadness that we report that two of our long-time members passed away this week. Melinda Riley was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of blood cancer in June. She deteriorated very rapidly over the past couple of weeks and died early on Sunday morning. Wendy Billing has also been battling cancer for a number of years. Earlier this year she was told that there were no further treatment options and she died on Tuesday morning. They will both be sorely missed and our thoughts are with their family and friends.
