Vale: Norma Wainwright

by Aidan Davis

Bowls Australia was saddened to hear of the recent passing of former BCiB Australian Jackaroo Norma Wainwright, who passed away on Good Friday.

Wainwright represented the country with distinction in 1988 and 1989, with a fours gold medal at the 1988 World Bowls Championships the pinnacle achievement, in addition to significant service to Western Australia at a state level.

She was bestowed Hall of Fame recognition by Bowls WA in 2007, as the 15th member inducted, and was awarded the state’s women’s bowler of the year accolade in successive years in 1992 and ’93.

Bowls Australia extends its sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Norma Wainwright.
