Bobbie (Robina) Jones,
trustee, friend and tireless supporter of One Community, has died, on
Tuesday 19 August. Fellow trustees, staff and volunteers have received
the news with great sadness. Bobby has served One Community for 19 years
as a trustee, imbuing all our work with compassion and concern for the
individual. She joined One Community as a trustee following her term as
Mayor of the Borough of Eastleigh, 1994-1995.
Bobbie has been
involved with many local voluntary and community groups over the years
and has contributed enormously to organisations supporting carers,
families and the bereaved. She was also a school governor in her time,
following a career in education, holding senior posts at secondary and
sixth form level. She was a well respected public figure - a member of
Eastleigh Borough Council from 1988 to 1996 - known as a powerful
advocate and generous mentor.
Bobbie as a woman of tremendous spirit, warmth and enthusiasm, concerned
with each and every one of us as she demonstrated in her frequent
visits and everyday kindnesses. She will be greatly missed.
