Jill Sallis

 

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Jill Sallis a well known and stalwart member of District 8 Inner Wheel.  Jill’s sudden death due to a car crash on Mon. 19th Nov. has left us all stunned. Jill was a member of Ely club and had been President at least twice and held various District roles including District Chairman. She always played an active part in Inner wheel life, attending Conferences and International Conferences including Borneo having fun with great friend Liz Thomas.   Jill had been a member of Inner Wheel for many years, as was her mother, and now daughter Susie is Vice President of The Ely club.    Jill always had a smile attending Inner Wheel events despite mobility issues of late and encouraged others with her heart warming approach. It was through her that I became a member of Inner Wheel.   Jill will certainly be missed by many.       Pauline Lancaster
