Update – Jeanne Parson

UPDATE 07/03 – I have been informed that the funeral will take place at Ruislip Crematorium, East Chapel on Wednesday 16th March at 14.30 for those that wish to pay their respects.


I am saddened to have to report that assistant club helper Simon Parson’s mother Jeanne passed away on February 22nd.  Jan, as she was affectionately known had been fighting a battle against a brain tumor for several weeks.  I have actually known Jan for a lot longer than I have known Simon – back in the mid 1970’s when I was running my own coach company I met with Bill, Simon’s father, and Jan, they also ran a coach business. Strange how years later I would meet up with Jan again when Simon joined Tanglewood.

Jeanne, was a great supporter of Tanglewood, she held two numbers in the 100 club and always attended Tanglewood social events.  She was also the owner of a “Narrow Boat” and would spend most summer cruising along various canal’s all over the south and midlands.  She was always happy and I will miss her.

On behalf of everyone at Tanglewood I offer my sincere condolences to Simon.
