Yvonne Andrews

1926 - 2016

We are sad to announce that Yvonne Andrews passed away on Wednesday 8 June 2016.

Yvonne, a Life Member of Warwickshire CBA, devoted over thirty years of service to bridge administration and development in Warwickshire. Yvonne was a member of the Warwickshire Council until 1970, when she joined the Executive Committee, and then went on to hold a number of offices including, Minutes Secretary, Chairman, Shareholder, Midland Counties Congress Committee Member/Chairman and, until her retirement from bridge administration in 2000, General Secretary.

Yvonne was awarded the English Bridge Union’s Dimmie Fleming Award for services to bridge at County level, and Life Membership of Warwickshire CBA and the Midland Counties Congress in recognition of her dedication and commitment.

Although Yvonne has not enjoyed the best of health recently, she still managed to play some bridge, and maintain a keen interest in the affairs of the County. Yvonne will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Our condolences go to her husband, Derek, her family and friends.
