Miss Janice Blamires (Wykebank)
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you of the passing of Mrs Janice Blamires (Wykebank).
Janice made up her first champion in 1985, Ch Maritoys Midnight Rose, bred by Mrs Watton. In 1993 Mr Ave Blamires bred Ch Wykebank Star Integrity with Crosspins which Janice co-owned and campaigned with Mr & Mrs Rigby. Ave and Janice imported a bitch from the Millmoor kennels, No Maybe of Millmoor and after Ave’s death Janice bred from this bitch to her own Ch Wykebank Star Integrity with Crosspins and this produced Ch Wykebank Maybe Starlight at Lafford which was owned and campaigned by Mrs Carol Lees.
Janice was also a hardworking member of the Lincoln & Humberside Yorkshire Terrier Club committee, serving as a committee member and an officer.
She was also involved with Cavaliers which she bred and showed with her friend Mrs Drene Lucas under the Alberica affix; her other interests included painting dogs and collecting Teddy Bears.
Janice awarded CCs in both Yorkshire Terriers and Cavaliers and had judged abroad on several occasions; the world of dogs will be a sadder place without her, she had a zest for life and would help anyone she felt had a genuine interest in her chosen breeds.
Janice shared her life with Brian Bradshaw and they were married just a short while ago, our deepest sympathy goes to Brian and his family.
The funeral was being held at 1pm on Thursday 19th January at Pontefract Crematorium.
