Life member Australian Dancing Society The end of an era!  Achievements unrivalled.  With grace, charm and an infectious smile now etched in our memories. She passed today at 4am summer eastern standard time with her beloved daughter Kim by her side at Barden Lodge Aged Care, Barden Ridge NSW at 97 years. A wonderful fulfilling life.

We pay tribute to her outstanding achievements in the world of dance.British Professional Champions, World professional Champions, Multi Australian Champions and so on it goes. With her Late husband Alf Davies she set a record that has yet to be matched. She is survived by her only daughter Kim, grand children Brooke, Jodi, Emma, Mia and Patrick and two great grandsons.

May she rest in peace.
