England and Wales (North) Region
09 Mar 18
PGA North is mourning the death of Ann Jones who served as administrative secretary for 19 years until her retirement in 2007.
She originally worked alongside Norman Fletcher at Bolton Golf Club, after a brief spell at Mere, and was hugely popular with the staff and players who lauded her efficiency.
Ann, who died on March 4 following after a brief illness, looked after several regional secretaries including Andy Salmon and Jim Croxton.
She also counted among her many friends golf professionals and tournament organisers. Her husband, Ron, worked part-time for the region in the late 1990s.
A celebration of Ann's life will be held at Overdale West Crematorium, Bolton, on Monday March 19 at 11am, followed by buffet refreshments at Bolton Golf Club.
Ron has requested that anyone who would like to attend should contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org
