Died 12 March 2015, aged 89: Great grandmother Doris Williams was well known through her membership of Sandal Bowling Club and Wakefield Inner Wheel Club. Following a service at Wakefield Crematorium, family and friends gathered at Sandal Rugby Club. Doris lived in Sandal for 42 years but in more recent years had moved to Ossett where she was near her son. She continued playing bowls until about two years before her death and travelled by bus to Sandal and the bowling club because, she said, it gave her a day out each week. She continued to do this even when she no longer played. Her husband Ray, who worked in the mines rescue service, died ten years ago
