A SAD FAREWELL TO YEPPOON’S JENNY HANSEN

by bqmedia

By Althea Vaughan

It is with much sorrow that we advise the passing of Jenny on 17th December 2021.

Jenny was a valued member of the Yeppoon Bowls Club, and represented the club and district for years in many events. Jenny represented the Central Queensland District at the State District Sides since 2009. She was always selected to play in the Division 1 Pennant team and in 2020 was selected to play for the North team in the North/South Challenge. Jenny was honoured to be the only player from the CQ District selected to play in this event.

On the green, Jenny was a quiet achiever, always encouraged her team, respected her opposition, was a humble winner and a gracious loser.

The last game Jenny played was the Pairs Champion of Champions Zone playoffs with partner Althea, at the Burnett Bowls Club, an event they won. Jenny was excited to have qualified and it was her wish to be well enough to play in the State Finals, but sadly, this was not to be. Jenny was liked and respected by all who knew her, and will be sadly missed.
