Many of you will have fond memories of Dionne Davies (Bett) and will have been saddened to hear that she passed away last week. An active rower, club member and Women’s Captain in the late 1990’s – 2002, and then social member, Remenham member and active Henley supporter, a warm and loyal friend who will be hugely missed by us all.
Dionne's funeral will take place at 11am on Wednesday, 10th December at Clandon Wood Natural Burial Reserve, Epsom Road, West Clandon, Guildford, GU4 7FN. Tel: 01483 479614.
Dionne's wish was to be buried in a natural woodland and meadow setting at Clandon Wood. She will rest in peace surrounded by the things she loved, thirty one acres of meadow consisting of trees, wildflowers, grazing sheep and a lake.
PLEASE NOTE: Wear bright clothing and footwear to suit an outdoor setting. Your feet will get muddy! Club blazers and scarlet welcomed.
Please bring footwear to change into afterwards. Please do not wear black, Dionne made it very clear, bright colours only!
Her parents Penny and Gerry, and her husband Keith would like to invite you to join them after the service for a drink to celebrate Dionne's life at the Horse and Groom, Epsom Road, Merrow, Guildford, GU1 2RG. Tel: 01483 575375.
If you have photos you would like to share of Dionne please bring a copy as we plan to display for all to view.
It would be appreciated it if it was family flowers only at the funeral.
However, if you wish to make a donation you will be able to do so on the day. Donations will go to Cancer Research and CaringBridge.
