Jennifer Darrell - February 8, 2019

I only just Mary in December when I joined the Encore club. I loved her quiet leading of exercise classes - always the same routine, no commentary but adjusted to the age of the group and an all round work out. Her inspiration to initiate this Club has been a gift to many "Seniors" and helping to keep us all young at heart. I am so sorry that she has left us and know she will be missed by many. My deepest sympathies to her family.
