Eve Ackrell

IT IS with sadness that I report the death of my colleague and friend of over 40 years, Eve Ackrell, on 3rd March aged 81.

Her first love was Dalmatians, which she showed and bred in her younger days. Later on Cairn Terriers became her pets. Eve will be remembered as the popular and long serving Secretary of Torquay & District Canine Society, eventually becoming Patron. She was also a current long serving Member of Paignton Ch Show and a Vice President of Devon & Cornwall Terrier Club.

Over the years mobility became a serious problem for her, but her indomitable spirit ensured that several Societies could rely on her for a ‘spare pair of hands’ until fairly recently. She will be greatly missed.
