Jean Reynolds, 1948-2009
Former Chairman of WSRA passes away

It is with great sadness that we hear that Jean Reynolds passed away last Sunday August 16th 2009.

Jean was first diagnosed with cancer some 26 years ago and she has been an example to us all in the way that she has fought the disease with such unbelievable courage and dignity.

In her early years Jean was an accomplished Tennis player reaching the final of the doubles at Junior Wimbledon, playing in the Wimbledon qualifying competition for several years and representing Warwickshire for 20 years.

She took up Squash in her twenties and soon represented Scotland in the European Championships. Perhaps her greater contribution to the Sport was in her role as an administrator, first joining the WSRA Board when she helped GB stage the first ever World Championship for women with the team event being played at her own club Edgbaston Priory.

She was later to take over as Chairman of WSRA and was involved in the amalgamation of the WSRA and SRA. She was also elected to serve on the Board of the European Squash Federation.

When she was diagnosed with cancer it was typical of Jean that she decided to take up a new sport, namely golf. Once again she reached great heights representing England at Senior Level and also took on the demanding role of Ladies captain at Edgbaston Golf Club.

Jean enjoyed life to the full and was blessed with a great sense of humour. Throughout these past 26 years she showed amazing bravery and courage, She will be sorely missed by so many from so many walks of life, not least by her husband Peter and sons Alexander and Edward.
