A Memorial Service will be held to celebrate the life and work of Stella in Knowle Parish Church at 2pm on Thursday, November 22nd,
followed by refreshments in the Guild House.
The Society has been notified of the death of one of our long-serving Members, Stella Jarman, who was awarded Life Membership of the Society in 2010, for her many years of service for the Society and the community.
Stella Jarman was a founder member of the Society from 1962, she became a Committee member in 1976. She then formed and chaired the Nature Reserve Sub-Committee from 1980. Stella resigned from what had become the Nature Conservation Sub-Committee in 2004 although her exceptional knowledge of wild flowers, trees and nature in general was not lost to Knowle as she continued to be very active with the Knowle Conservation Volunteers and as a tree warden for Solihull Council.
It is with great sadness that we have learnt today (8th February 2013) that Gary Masters, a recent former Chairman of The Knowle Society and before that the long-serving chairman of the Society’s Community Services committee, died in hospital this morning after a period of indifferent health.
Gary was a truly committed and dedicated member of the Society and gave a very great deal of his time and energy to the village of Knowle through his work with the Society.
His funeral will be held on Friday 8th March, 11:00 at Solihull Crematorium (Robin Hood) and 12:00 at Knowle Parish Church. Refreshments will be served afterwards at Knowle Royal British Legion.
Family Flowers only, donations through Braggs (Funeral Directors, Knowle) to Diabetes UK.
