Ginny lost her very long battle against cancer on Thursday 9th May, 50 days after Dick died from leukaemia. (see Dick Suter Donate in Memory page)
Friends and family have been so generous on raising money on Dick's Donate in Memory page, however the family do not want flowers at the funeral in Cannes France and if you would like to make a very small contribution to this cancer charity that helps cancer research, they would be very grateful with your personal message.
Ginny's funeral took place on Friday, May 17th at the Crematorium de Cannes: Chemin de la Plaine de Laval, 06150 Cannes La Bocca, France
£1,652.50 plus £169.38 of Gift Aid was collected for Cancer Research.

For many years when Ginny lived in Belgium at Waterloo and Ohain near Brussels she hosted a radio programme on local radio every Friday "Friday at 2"
Pictured below are Sule Ural and Irene Lynch, pictured kindly supplied by Sule, but unfortunately did not have one of Ginny in the studio. Sule is on the left and Irene on the right. Apart from presenting this programme and interviewing numerous people over the years, her media skills also included writing for magazines like Internationals in Belgium and Plug-In Belgium. Her funeral service was held on Friday 17th May 2013 appropriately at 2 p.m.
