Lynne Gossage

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of  Lynne Gossage, wife of long standing club member Michael Gossage.

Lynne was always a great supporter of the branch's activities and a good friend to its members with a delightful sense of humour and fun she indulged us in our chosen pastime. Often she would accompany Michael when he visited model shops in the Birmingham area and was well known to their customers. She also acted as hostess to John Kesler (and Jim Marconi in 2011) of our twin chapter, IPMS Syracuse, New York, on his bi-annual visit to Scale ModelWorld.

Lynne was a keen runner and had taken part in a number of marathons and half-marathons over the past decade.

Sadly, she was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer just before last year's Scale ModelWorld and passed away at 06.41 on Monday 27th May. Our condolences go to Michael, their children Elizabeth, Michael and Matthew and grandchildren.

Her Funeral will take place at 12 noon, Friday 14th June,  Lodge Hill Crematorium, Weoley Castle, Birmingham. Michael and the family have asked that donations be made to either MacMillan Nurses or St Mary's Hospice in lieu of flowers.
