It is with profound sadness that Ashbury Netball Club advises of the passing of Mrs Betty Spillane (ANC Life Member 1999) after a short illness.

Mrs Spillane was known to many in the Ashbury netball community as an official, an umpire but primarily as a COACH (her first love).  She coached many teams as premiers or runners-up, both for St Francis Xaviers' Primary School from the early 1970s and with Ashbury up until her retirement in 2020.  For many years she coached multiple teams per season and held so many positions with Ashbury we've lost count. 

She was at the 2022 grand finals (in the rain) and was so proud of all our players, coaches and umpires on their success.  She will be missed by all of us.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to her husband Don and daughters Donna, Frances, Vicki, Peta and their families on their loss.

Further details will be advised when available.

Eternal life grant unto her O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her.  May she rest in peace.
