Vale Ruth Young

​It is with a heavy heart I share the sad news of the passing of long time Northern Official, Ruth Young.  
Ruth was heavily involved in school hockey. She coached Northern Teams from 1988 – 2017, she managed QLD teams from 2004 to 2007 and was involved in Townsville Primary School Hockey from 1990.
Ruth was the recipient of Queensland School Sport Regional Service award in 2015.
Those that knew Ruth, would be aware of her long running health battles.
Ruth’s funeral will be held at 4pm Friday 14 June at the Uniting Church on Anne St (Aitkenvale) and afterwards at her place at 8 Cashmere Court Annandale.
Farewell Ruth, your contribution to Northern School Sport will not be forgotten.
Brook Wilson
Regional School Sports Officer - Northern
