Obituaries

Sadly two long-time supporters and Friends of the orchestra have died in the past few months. Mary Allen, who lived in Eye, was 95 when she died and had kept up her membership of the Friends despite not being able to get to concerts in her last few years.

Chris Koe, who has died at the age of 84, very rarely missed a concert along with his wife Jane. They relocated to Peterborough in 1967 when when the Passport Office moved here and he worked there as a Higher Executive Officer until his retirement. Chris attended St Peter & All Souls Catholic Church in Peterborough, where he sang in the choir for 25 years. Chris and Jane both loved singing in the Diocesan Choir. After retirement Chris volunteered with the local Red Cross and helped with parish work at his church.
