Vale Bill Gregory - Reported by ANZROC WA


Bill would be known to some of our Members and we also pass our condolences to his family.


It is with deep regret that I advise members of the passing of Bill
after a long battle with cancer. As Jo and the family are all residing
in Victoria, rather than placing a notice in The West I have arranged
for a bunch of roses to be sent to Jo along with the deepest
sympathies and sincere condolences of ANZROC-WA Members.
Bill was a previous ANZ Staff Club President and many will
remember Bill for his friendship and humour both at work and
socially. Rest in Peace

Vale Dorothy Bailey

We received the message below from Maria Natoli to be shared with our Members

Dorothy Bailey's family has asked me to let ANZROC members know that Dorothy passed away at home on Saturday, 8 January after a battle with cancer.   Dorothy never really recovered from the shock of Will passing away so quickly and unexpectedly.  As per Dorothy's wishes, a private family funeral will be held in a small chapel on Monday, 17 January.


 Dorothy and I regularly kept in touch.  She told me that when Will passed, she was overwhelmed with the number of letters, cards, messages, and flowers she received from Will's bank friends.  Many times, she tried to respond, but the task was too daunting and upsetting for her.  I know that Dorothy was very grateful for the thoughtfulness that she and her family received at that time.


Our condolences are extended to Dorothy's family
