Message from Bruce Aley.
It is with much sadness that I have to convey that Moira O’Brien passed away this morning, 4th September 2017.
She had been staying with her daughter in Opotiki but had returned home, suffered a heart attack and developed an infection.
Moira’s funeral will be at Dils on Thursday, 7 September at 12.30pm.
As our older members will know Moira was a stalwart of both the former Mairangi Bay Women’s Bowling Club and the new combined club and in recent years her strength was in coaching new members. For her dedication to coaching for over 30 years, Moira was awarded Bowls New Zealand Coach of the Year twelve years ago. Moira was a Life Member of Mairangi Bay Bowling Club.
Most of our junior members will acknowledge the initial coaching they received from Moira which set them on the path to many bowling successes.
