RIP Lily Veitch












It is my sad duty to report the passing today (August 3) of Lily Veitch, mother of well-known guitarist Roly Veitch, the organiser of Blaydon Jazz Club.
Lily was an enthusiastic supporter of the music and frequently accompanied Roly to concerts and gigs, particularly those held at the various venues in the town where Blaydon Jazz Club was encamped.
Always a keen dancer, the young Lily is 3rd from the left in the photo of the dancing troupe she was part of. The more recent photo was taken, with Roly, at the celebration of her 90th birthday.
Our condolences go out to Roly, Christine and all the family as well as to those of us who will miss a lovely lady.
Lily Veitch was 96, sadly missed, may she Rest In Peace.
Lance.
PS: Funeral arrangements will be announced in due course.

Roly, I remember you sang 'Pennies from Heaven' with the VCJ at one of our 'Jazz Embassy' gigs at the Mansion House some years ago. Lily was there, too. The look of pride and admiration on her face said it all, your mother was also your biggest fan. Rest in peace.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Roly.
