Bobbie Prout, warm memories


A service of thanksgiving was held at St Mary’s Church on Monday November 30 for the life of Roberta (Bobbie) Prout, writes Kenneth Bird. The order of service recalled her difficult early years and the happiness and fulfillment she found in family life. She came to Rye in 2000 and many here will remember at first hand her unfailing cheerfulness and stoicism in her long fight against cancer.  She was indeed a source of inspiration.
