Just as you would expect... The RAFPA mbrs,some who travelled many hundreds of miles in bitterly cold conditions and awful traffic build ups due to extensive road works on many routes into Doncaster,did Lynne W proud smartly turned out in RAFPA ceremonial attire complete with the National Standard borne by the Nat Chairman Brian Flinn and supported by his wife Joy and the Branch Standard flown too in support. Some 45 plus members lined the entrance to the Rose Hill Crematorium in brilliant sunshine(but with a biting westerly wind) with well over 120 plus family and friends looking on in great pride,John Curtis brought the Honour Guard to a respectful attention as the silver hearse slowly entered the entrance Canopy with Lynne's coffin draped in the Union Jack and the flag of Doncaster Rovers ( Lynne and her partner Doug were long standing supports of the Club).The guard remained in situ until family and friends entered the small receiving room which left very little room for the HG to enter and bid their own farewell to Lynne.The packed service room heard from Doug her partner and the Vicar who regaled us with Lynne's life time events including her nine yrs in the RAF Police including a tour in Hong Kong ,her extensive singing appearances at many venues and work for the Doncaster Council.Many attending her funeral were surprised to learn of her sudden death at just aged 63 yrs following a simple fall and ankle break.She also devoted much of her free time to the association as National Secretary at one time and more recently as South Yks Branch Secretary for many years. Many attending the funeral retired to the Horse and Groom in Lynne's home town of Armthorpe for drinks and a final farewell.
