It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Mrs Maureen Wood on 11th March 2016 after a lengthy battle with dementia.
Maureen, and all three of her her daughters Jackie, Claire and Barbara, were heavily involved with the Pembroke side of the club for many years.
She started out as a runner in the days when the ladies section was a little more spartan than it is today. No problem to Maureen, she’d just run with
the men instead; while playing netball for a team based at Liverpool Harriers ! Despite what might appear as divided loyalties it was with
Liverpool Pembroke she became an accomplished hurdler and later a qualified official for the club. In her time she was also committed to
the Merseyside AAA and even filled the role of treasurer.
No shrinking violet she wasn’t slow to point out to Liverpool Football Club who was around first when our team bus pulled alongside theirs
just after they’d won the “double”. We are fast losing our characters from the sport, and she was certainly one. We should cherish their
memories. She will be deeply missed by many of us.
Maureen’s funeral will be held at Thorntom crematorium on 24th March at 12 noon. A collection will be made for care home that Maureen spent her last 4 years in.
