    OBITUARY – HANNAH OVERTON (HUNTINGDONSHIRE)

    Bowls England regrets to inform you that former Women’s Junior International captain Hannah Overton passed away on 23rd December at the age of 28, after being diagnosed with Leukaemia earlier in the year.

    Hannah made her England debut in 2006 at the age of 15 and went on to represent her country in numerous International Series’, including captaining the England Blue team to success in Northern Ireland in 2014.

    Hannah secured a National title in 2012 as a member of Huntingdonshire’s Walker Cup team. In 2011, she reached the final of the Women’s National Pairs Championship with Michelle Barlow (now Coleman), before also reaching the Women’s National Junior Singles Championship Final in 2014 (pictured with 2013 Bowls England President Rosemary Ellman-Brown). Hannah was an integral part of Parkway BC’s run to the final of the Women’s Top Club in 2017.

    Hannah’s funeral will take place on Friday 11th January 2019 at 12.30 pm at the Whittlesey Christian Church, 23 Broad Street, Whittlesey, Peterborough, PE7 1HA.

    Following the ceremony there will be a private family interment, with a Wake taking place at Parkway Sports and Social Club, Maskew Avenue, Peterborough, PE1 2AS. Family flowers only. Donations in Hannah’s memory should be made to Haematology Ward 41 at Leicester Royal Infirmary – it will be possible to do this at the service. Hannah’s wishes were for colourful clothing to be worn.

    Hannah was well respected within the sport of bowls and will be missed by all who knew her.

    Bowls England sends its condolences to Hannah’s family and friends.
