Lorna Delanoy died at the West Suffolk Hospital on May 19th. Her funeral service will be held at Norton Parish Church on Wednesday June 6th at 2pm.

During the 1950s she was a popular PE and games mistress at the Ely High School for Girls, then at Bedford House in St. Mary's Street. She helped design the gymnasium for the new High School at Downham Road which is now part of the City of Ely College complex.

In 1956 she married Don Delanoy and lived at Stapleford, later at Foxton, in South Cambridgeshire, where she became a parish councillor, school governor and chair of the Gardening Club.

Moving to Suffolk 21 years ago, she continued her interest in church work, gardening and British Legion Poppy Day collections even though for the past three and a half years she had been confined to a wheel chair.

News of Ely High Old Girls was always welcome and she attended the centenary celebrations both at the cathedral and at Brook House two years ago.

As well as her husband, she leaves brothers and sisters-in- law, John and Barbara of Ely, and Mike and Lorna of Mepal.
