Dr. Rajinder Mayes (née Bansal), 1938-2018.
Raj, one of our longest-standing members, died on 21st March 2018. She had been a regular attender at our meetings over several decades and took responsibility for organising our Spring Meetings in the early 2000s. She was a respected colleague and friend, loved by all. It had long been the intention of Raj and Charles to marry but circumstances prevented this until shortly before her death. Her funeral, at Staines, was attended by a large number of relatives, some of whom had travelled from India and also many friends, former colleagues, members of the BMPA and her devoted boxer dog, Prudence. Our deepest sympathy is extended to Charles, who accompanied Raj to most of the BMPA meetings over the years.
