Today the DEFC family lost two very special ladies with the passing of Melissa Lee and Anne Stevenson. Both have been involved in and around the Club in recent years whilst both fighting their own personal challenge with cancer. Both were brave and courageous to the end and were inspirational to us all. More details are below and we will keep you up to date with with arrangements in the coming days.

In what has already been a difficult and sad day for the DEFC family we have learnt this afternoon of the passing of one of our favorite daughters Anne Stevenson. Many will have met Anne when buying a drink over the bar and will have had the pleasure of Anne’s dry sense of humour and at times motherly instincts in bringing our players in to line (in a manner only Anne could get away with).
Whilst Anne has fought hard over the last few years to overcome her illness, she continued to be part of our Club and gave of her time when maybe she should have be looking after herself. But Anne just loved being around the Club and said it was the best medicine she could get.
Our deepest condolences go out to Anne’s partner Simon Roos, Anne’s children Matt and Sarah, and the Stevenson and Roos families
