Judy Frisby

We are writing to let you know the sad news that Judy Frisby, passed away on 30 November.
As many of you will know, she was involved with the Society for many years, as a performer and choreographer. She battled Alzheimer’s Disease for 9 years and for the last 6 years she was a resident in a Leicestershire care home, near her daughter Denise, where she received excellent 24-hour care.

The funeral will be held at 11am on Friday 15 December at Kettering Crematorium, Rothwell Road, Kettering, Northamptonshire NN16 8XE, followed by lunch at our house in Market Harborough. If any members of the society who knew her would like to attend they would be extremely welcome.
We would appreciate it if they could let us know if they are coming (telephone 01858 445607, mobile 07722 877987).

We request that, instead of flowers, donations could be made to the Alzheimer’s Society. Donations can be made using the “memory giving” website https://www.memorygiving.com/jeanfrisby
Alternatively, a cheque can be sent to the funeral directors made payable to “J Stamp and Sons” at:

J Stamp and Sons
The Chestnuts
15 Kettering Road
Market Harborough
LE16 8AN

Please ensure you include a note stating that the donation is in memory of Jean Frisby (many of you will know that 'Judy' was her stage name).

Many thanks in advance.

Denise and Alex Dawson.
