Mrs Cecilia Leigh
Stockport Golf Club regrets to announce the death of our oldest member of Stockport Golf Club, Mrs Cecilia Leigh who died peacefully on the 20th December 2020. She was 106 on the 26th September.
She was an inspirational and spirited lady, the last of a gentle and dignified generation of women who grew up experiencing events of history that we can only read about.
She was widowed early in her marriage and brought up 4 children who went onto give her 38 Grandchildren and 4 Great Grandchildren. She lived in the same house in Droylesden for 84 years, never drove a car and always came to the club by bus. She lived through 26 prime ministers and four royal heads of state. She sounds so like the Queen !
She loved Stockport Golf Club and was so proud to be made a Life Social Member on her 102nd birthday by John Ainley something she never failed to mention at her birthday press conferences every year !
