RIP Joan Whittaker
It is with deep sadness that we heard about the death of Club Stalwart, Joan Whittaker at the age of 89 yesterday. Joan, an Honorary Life Vice President, was a lifelong supporter of Grasshoppers along with husband Frank and could both be seen on most Saturdays at the Club cheering Grasshoppers on. They had both been supporters of Grasshoppers since son, Ian in joined the Club in 1965.

Joan had been suffering with degenerative arthritis and had been in a lot of pain so passed peacefully in her sleep in her own bed yesterday. Our sympathies go to Ian, daughter Sheila, grandchildren; Emma, Lucy, Malissa and Robert plus numerous great grand-children.

We will keep you informed of the funeral arrangements in due course.
