Obituary

Remenham Wood

Carpeted with Bluebells
Utils/ShwIncInf__469: Include Cory_V0/Family/Yeo/Death.php

In May 1999, after we had sold our business, Sally and I set out for England for our first real holiday for many years. We started our trip in Henley-on-Thames, where Sally's sister Jane and her husband Rick lived, and on our first day we all visited Remenham Wood, a beautiful spot near Henley, with a magnificent carpet of bluebells. We had a very happy time exploring the local countryside, and on the fourth day we went to Kew Gardens, then took Jane and Rick out to a most enjoyable dinner in a local restaurant.

We were staying in a B&B next door, and as we returned to our room Sally had a heart attack and collapsed unconscious on the bed. She was taken to Reading Hospital by ambulance, where she was put on life support. However they were unable to revive her, and she died when they turned it off early the next morning (May 6th, 1999).

We had her cremated, and after a small ceremony at the crematorium Rick, Jane & I scattered half her ashes in Remenham Wood. I cancelled the rest of our trip, and came home as soon as I could.

I brought the rest of her ashes home, and on June 25th we held a Farewell for her in the Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Gardens. After the ceremony I planted a recently discovered eucalypt in the Anderson Street lawns and scattered her ashes around it.

A large number of Sally's friends attended, and several of them spoke in her memory.

 

Sally Riordan. Born in Southsea, UK on 2 October 1934, died 6 May 1999 at Reading, UK.
