Re(5): Georgie

I am very sad to hear of the loss of another close friend. Georgie started writing her witty emails to me when the Crossword Centre first started. She was a very clever and caring person but did not suffer fools gladly.

I met her a couple of times and was invited to spend a weekend at her Suffolk cottage. We spent most of the time solving crosswords and eating in her local pub.

Georgie was a trained proof-reader and I always asked her to check any articles I had written. Her comments and her skill with punctuation were wonderful.

Earlier this year we had a long conversation after the death of Trevor Crowther. Trevor had become her close friend and Trevor would phone her almost every night. Georgie insisted that she should contribute towards the cost of the Crowther Cup.

Georgie had suffered with health issues all the time that I knew her. When she did not reply to my most recent emails I guessed she might be unwell. She will be missed by many.
