Kath Coward

Sadly Kath Coward passed away peacefully at the beginning of August. She was 103 years old. As you may know, Kath was a former proprietor of Mayfield Bridge Club when it was originally based in Epsom, a Dimmie Fleming award winner and Life Master, a SCBA Committee member for 25 years - including being President of SCBA in 1973 (39 years ago!), and a Mayfield Duplicate Bridge Club Committee member for 40 years. A very good player and servant of Bridge who will be sorely missed by many!
