Vanessa Stopher (Wife)

A tribute byColin Stopher

Vanessa Stopher – light of my life - age 68
Without whom I have been in some dark places.
Much loved wife of 44 years and proud mother of 2 sons. Died November 2015, barely 5 weeks from any symptoms, less than 3 weeks from hospital admission, 18 days after diagnosis.
Missed by so many people: family, friends and neighbours she was generous with her time in the community over the years. At the local primary school; as a cycling proficiency instructor; as Secretary/organiser of the village flower show; and latterly as President of the village Gardening Club.
Regular player and organiser for four separate badminton groups as well as serving and inspiring as a WeightWatchers Leader at meetings across 3 counties AND made over 60 blood donations.
For such an active person to fall so quickly to this cruel form of the feared disease shows how important it is to find the means of earlier diagnosis and effective treatment.
