Dear Leeds Branch members and friends,
Kathie Dosell has shared the sad news that Ivy Lawson, who recently celebrated her 100th birthday, passed away very peacefully on January 4th at the Care Home where she had lived for the last 5 years. As Kathie says, a fantastic chapter has closed with her passing. Ivy was an enthusiastic Branch member and reputedly taught the carers in her Care Home to dance 'Scottish'! The dance All the Eights was written to celebrate her 88th birthday by Brenda Burnell.
