Dr Rowena Arshad (e-mail received 18.9.2009) has requested the following message to be posted in www.kirkbyites.net:
 
My mother Teoh Phaik Choo, retired teacher from Parkside Independent School, Northampton 
passed away peacefully in the Cynthia Spencer Hospice on 6th January 2009.
 
On looking back at her photos, I know that her time in Kirkby were some of her more happy and adventurous times. 
So much so, that she emigrated to the UK in 1979. 
 
She leaves behind her daughter Rowena, son-in-law Malcolm and 
two grandchildren, Alasdair and Catriona who all now live n Scotland, UK.
 
 

Rowena
