It is with great sadness that we report the death of Jill Rowbotham , who died peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 12th, 2020, at home with her husband David and son Matthew by her side.

Jill had been a keen member of our branch for many years. She was such a well liked, friendly and cheerful lady who enjoyed all kinds of stitching, from embroidery to patchwork and quilting.

Jill was a valued , talented and positive member of our group. She loved to attend day and weekend workshops to advance her already wide knowledge of stitching.

In recent years she organised and ran our fabric and threads stall at our monthly meetings. She did this with such flair, having spent a lifetime working in retail.

Over two years previously Jill had bravely fought cancer and recovered and was able to attend our meetings again. However, very sadly she was again taken ill, and passed away.

She will be missed by all her many stitching friends.

From all at Macclesfield and District Eg, Jill, “” Rest in Peace”
