It is with great sadness that I have to write the news of the passing of Anna McKnight of the world famous Daneview affix. Anna was a close friend to Carolyn, Glenn and I and she will be greatly missed by ourselves and her many friends and admirers aroun the globe. These notes will just give the funeral arrangements and I will give some of Anna’s great achievements within our breed in a future breed notes.
The funeral will be at 11.20am on the 2nd May at The Rose Hill Cremetorium, Cantley Lane, Cantley, Doncaster DN4 6NE. Mairi, Anna’s daughter, wishes us to know there will be flowers or there will be also a donation bowl for the Northern and Eastern Counties Papillon Club benevolent fund. The funeral directors are, Pinders and Sons, Thorne Road, Bawtry, DN10 6QL, South Yorks.
Also Anna’s Papillon memorabilia that is not given to friends will go to the N&EC Papillon Club to either auction or for the club stall. Those not attending and that do not want to give flowers, can send a donation to Mairi and she will then pass it on.
No words can express the sadness of losing one of our greatest advocates for the butterflies and moths.
