Sheila Williams 1949 - 2016

We are saddened by the news of the passing of Sheila Williams.

A message from her family:

“In early 2012, Sheila was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer. For much of the last four years, she was able to continue to live an active and independent life at home as she wished. She died peacefully on Thursday at the care home in Mexborough, where she had been for the last few months.

We are grieving for our loss, grateful for the time we had and the care she received, and relieved that she is no longer suffering.”

Sheila has been a BVF member since 2000 and was a regular competitor in BVF events.

Vets events such as the European or World Championships have a similar rule: your qualifying age is your age on December 31st this year.
