Vale Judy Joy Davies AOR: Melbourne Softball acknowledges the recent passing of Judy Joy Davies.
Judy Joy ‘covered local and international sport’ included a strong leaning towards females in sport. She was a staunch supporter of softball for over two decades. Judy Joy regularly visited Fawkner Park and the Domain to gather newsworthy topics and catch up with her softball friends. Softball was fortunate enough to have regular. sometimes weekly articles in the Herald Sun and it’s precursor newspapers, and not just a few lines in one column. You will find in our archives articles with photographs that were often a quarter page in size. Ah those were the days! SOFTBALL in a bold heading and signed off by Judy Joy Davies.
Rest in peace Judy Joy. Sincere condolences to her family and friends.
