Kate Rush


Kate Rush.
Authoritative.  Knowledgeable.  Caring.  Committed.  Happy.
And gone too soon.
Was Treasurer of Meadows Advice Group for the 2 years I was Chair.
Brought stability.
And a wide range of experiences, from railway offices, to bar management, to commissioning of social services, to helping the disabled.
A wide range of passions too –  reading books, real ale, cricket and the family cat.
A massive heart attack in November 2013 nearly killed her.
Since then, she’d completed a Masters degree and worked for the County Council (having previously worked for the City Council for 5 years), but plans for a heart transplant could not come forward quickly enough.
Mourners wore purple at her funeral today.
