Primary School in Bellville. Later went to St Cyprians as a boarder and later to Rustenburg Girls High as a Day Scholar, staying with Grandparents at "Inversnaid", Campground Road, Newlands Enjoyed all sports! Played Hockey, Tennis, and Badminton competitively. Played hockey and umpired until her mid 50's then continued to umpire and coach until she was 62 when she retired from umpiring but continued to coach the Loretto Convent (Strand) girls for another 5 years when she finally quit. When she moved to Somerset West in 1956 she joined Van Der Stell Hockey Club and discovered that she was the only Graded Ladies Hockey Umpire in the Boland. (Grade2a) Played second team tennis for Pinelands and later Recreation in Somerset West. Only played social tennis in her 50's until she quit about the same time she quit actively playing Hockey. Played Grand Challenge League Badminton in Pinelands! Never played competitively again after she moved to Somerset West; only an occasional social game at the Presbyterian Church Hall when she very ably demonstrated that her skills had not left her! Worked at Aga Heat as a cooking demonstrator before she was married. Never worked full time again until her Husband was Manager of Tria Cinema, Somerset West when she helped in a number of capacities until the cashier left and she took over the Box-office. After they left the Cinema she worked variously for Heritage Homes and Mastertreads. (DFW)
