It is with great sadness Netball NSW informs our community of the passing of Jean Peare OAM on Friday 21 February, 2014.
Jean had a long association with netball, particularly with Hawkesbury City Netball Association. She is a Life Member and patron of the Association, and held many roles on the Executive, including President for 27 years.
Jean’s efforts were far-reaching in the netball community; she served as Official Functions convenor at the 1991 Netball World Championships, was delegate to Netball NSW council for 29 years, received the Anne Clark Service Award in 1978 and an Order of Australia Medal in 1998. In 2012, Jean was the recipient of the Waratah Service Award for distinguished service to Netball NSW.
The Board, Staff and Members of Netball NSW would like to extend our condolences to Jean’s family and friends for their loss.
