Deirdre Drewett

Sadly Deirdre passed away on 6th November 2017 at the age of 90. My sincere sympathies go out to her family, friends and former colleagues. Deirdre was Trade Exchange Officer in the airline’s Commercial Division and very well known across the company.

In March 2017, around 25 colleagues held a surprise 90th Birthday party for Deirdre.  The photo below shows Deircre with Liz Ross (left) and Sally Ann Beischer (right). More photos from that happy day can be seen here     
Service details

Deirdre's service was held on Friday 17th November at Worthing Crematorium, Horsham Road, Findon, West Sussex

The family kindly extended an invitation to friends and colleagues to join them at the service and afterwards too
