Vale Pauline Wardleworth

We were saddened to hear that long-time FSP member, Pauline Wardleworth, died on the 24th November, 2016, aged 87. She was an active member of FSP for many years, and edited Friendly Street Reader 9 with Graham Rowlands. She returned from Stawell to live again in Adelaide from 2006. During that time she wrote some poetry for family, friends and for the newsletter in her aged care residence. She remained interested in all things literary and was a voracious reader of fiction.  Her daughter, Katherine Healy, says, “Friendly Street gave my mother such joy, personal connection and developed her skills as a poet and editor.” Our condolences extend out to her family.

Her funeral will on Tuesday 29 November at 2pm at Blackwell’s Funeral Chapel, 290 Greenhill Road, Glenside.
