On Saturday 24th January 2009 another of our great friends left us. Joyce Woodward 'mothered' many people in the area and we
were no exception. She was always enquiring into our health and giving us advice. We first met about 6 years ago when we ran a
computer club in the New Romney Methodist Church Hall and she came along to obtain assistance. In no time at all, and I don't know
exactly how, she persuaded me to come along to the local W.I. market to assist with their accounts. Once I was involved
with this we became very good friends and I was requested to help with her book keeping for the local Art Society. She had
her fingers in many pies, and was always busy. As her son said at her Memorial Service there came a time when we had to request
an appointment providing, of course, that we could find her at home in the first instance.
On several occasions she came out with us to the Lifeboat Station to listen to the Canterbury Town Band which she always enjoyed very much. Also we took her with us to Choral concerts if she was available. Our other trips to the Tenterden Club for various forms of entertainment always left us amazed because if possible she was up on her feet and dancing, whilst we had to sit and watch. At one of our parties she was dancing away and a photo follows showing this.
