In memorium: Mary Palmer

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Mary PalmerIt was with sadness, tinged with joy, that we inform you that our friend Mary Palmer died peacefully in her sleep on the morning of Tuesday, 9th June. Mary had battled long with melanoma and was being cared for in the last few weeks by the wonderful staff of Dorothy House Hospice, near Bradford-upon-Avon. Mary was a marvellous friend and poet. She was thrilled when a collection of her poems (‘Iona’) was published by Awen Publications, (Bath), in 2008.

Mary was a creative soulmate, always ready with beautiful words of wisdom, or perceptive criticism! We shall miss her deeply.
