Delma was the club secretary of Narooma Croquet for 10 years as well as being a long time playing member.
Delma had a quiet, poetic composure so it seems fitting that a tribute in the form of a poem will best honour her memory.
Leonard Favier, President of NCC.
A gentle woman certainly was she
Our quietly efficient club secretary,
Amidst the hurly burly of the game of croquet
Club players always remembering Delma today;
No longer keeping meetings at a polite disposition
Pointing out firmly the facts of the constitution,
Reminding us of association rules and regulation
When members strayed from the main narration,
Ensuring records were all in a bibliophile order
Working to the end to ensure a smooth handover;
Croquet greens and milieu will not be the same
In our hearts and minds Delma lovingly will remain.
