The Club is very sad to report that Olive Wilson sadly passed away at home on Sunday 6th September, age 82.


A supporter of the club over many years, but especially whilst her late husband, Alan 'Tug' Wilson was Honorary Secretary, happily giving over her dining room to allow him to do the role in his own unique way.

Olive was also involved in many Ladies Day and St Patrick's Nights at Peel Croft. Many will also remember her as a Senior Sister at Burton Hospital where she ran a very tight ship on her ward.

Olive was a formidable lady and even following a very serious accident whilst on holiday in Ireland some years ago, that left her using a wheelchair she was so determined to get back to her own home. Hospitals and nursing homes were just no place for Olive!

A private service will be held at Bretby Crematorium, family flowers only please, donations in memory payable to 'Cancer Research UK' may be sent c/o Murray's Funeral Directors 23 York Street, Burton, DE14 2LX. Tel: 562299.
To donate online please visit https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very sad and difficult time.
