It is with much sadness that we record the passing of Grace Stewart at 85, on 13 June 2021.
Grace, and her late husband John, became involved immediately their children took up baseball in the 1980’s and they made invaluable contributions over many years. Community Sporting Clubs like ours depend very heavily on the support provided by its’ volunteers and Grace and John were outstanding members during a difficult time in the Club’s history when the Club was struggling to survive at the old Gasworks site without a permanent home ground or specialist facilities.
Grace’s commitment to the Club and her willingness to get involved and assist when she could, made the Club a welcoming place and contributed greatly to our subsequent success. Simply put, Grace was a “baseball mum” of the highest possible order and she will be sadly missed and long remembered.
Grace and her husband John’s outstanding service and contribution to the Club were recognised in the Service Awards made at our Centenary Celebrations in 2014.
Our deepest sympathy to her children, Sandra, Matthew, Jamie, Andrew, Paul, Cathy and Helen and their families.
