Remembered with Affection - Elizabeth Munro née Neal (CG 1964)

Obituary published in OGA Chain magazine 2021

1 July 1946 – 24 January 2021

Elizabeth was born and brought up in Winchester, one of five girls who all attended St Swithun’s School.

She started at Medecroft in 1951 as a day girl and was in Caer Gwent for most of her time at the senior school. She enjoyed her time at St Swithun’s and represented the school at lacrosse.

After she left school, Elizabeth worked in the travel business starting at Winchester Travel Service and then managing various travel agencies in Alton, Farnham, Wimbledon and Canford Cliffs. She married in February 1976 and lived in Farnham for most of her working life. After a brief time in Bere Regis, Dorset, she and her husband Jim, retired to the village of Aneres in the South West of France in the early 2000s. Jim died in May 2020.

Elizabeth was a keen tennis and squash player and for many years played for the ladies squash team at Winchester Tennis Club as well as participating in many of the social tennis tournaments at the club. Unfortunately as the years went on, trouble with her knees meant less tennis and squash but latterly, she enjoyed walking holidays, many of which she did with her husband, Jim, and sister, Linda. Whilst living in France, Elizabeth enjoyed cycling and walking in the local area. She particularly enjoyed travelling in Africa and in 2016 was fortunate enough to visit the gorillas in Uganda, which was a wonderful experience.

She will be much missed by all her family and friends.
