Mavis Clarke died on Thursday 17 January 2019. She was predeceased by her husband, Gerry, who died in 2010. Mavis’s children, Shona, Liam and Fergus asked that the London Irish community be informed about Mavis’s funeral arrangements. These are shown below.
Liam and Fergus started playing with London Irish in 1977 and from then the whole family were a very committed part of the London Irish community until Gerry died. Gerry and Mavis enjoyed the post match company in the bar in The Avenue where Gerry would keep the party going by ensuring everyone had a drink. Mavis could be prevailed upon to sing the Mingulay Boat Song which she did very well with a strong and clear voice. They especially enjoyed going to the Wild Geese matches once the amateur club was established and rarely missed a game whether home or away
