The death of Joyce Cooke has been announced at the age of 92. Joyce was
an early member of Exeter Quilters and the first chairman of South West
Quilters. She was an amazing hand quilter and embroiderer as well as
knitting and spinning. Although she has not been able to get to EQ
meetings of late, she has kept up her interest in what was going on and
supported us from the sidelines. Her funeral is on the same day as Mary
Swainger’s but is a small private affair – by invitation only – at her
personal request. Barbara has sent condolences to her two nieces on
behalf of the Perfect Circles.
Mary Swainger’s funeral is on 4th October at 11.30 at St Peter’s Chapel,
Exeter Crematorium. Family flowers only but donations to Hospiscare.
