In Memoriam: Joan Firth

It is with great sadness that we report the sad passing of Joan Firth, the long serving Secretary of Heart Throbs. Joan passed away on the evening of Tuesday 19th July 2016 after a two year battle with Myasthenia Gravis, a muscle wasting disease. She was 72.

Joan had been the much loved Secretary of Heart Throbs since 2008. Her original involvement followed her Husband Chris’s triple bypass and the benefits he was feeling from attending exercise sessions. In her period of office the club’s membership grew exponentially, requiring the introduction of additional exercise sessions on Mondays.
