It is with great sadness I share with you that Karen a dear friend, a member of the NZB Board, a past member of the Waikato Bays Regional Committee, past president of the Tauranga Bridge Club and current Club Captain of the same club passed away on Friday 21 May.

Karen has been a major contributor to the growth and wellbeing of bridge in New Zealand. Her energy, dedication, teaching, directing, wide range of skills, and sheer love for the game will be sorely missed. We have lost someone very special.

Our heart goes out to Kate, Karen’s  partner in life and often at the table,  and also regular bridge partner Julie Sheridan.

Karen - Rest In Peace, we love you.



Chair, New Zealand Bridge
