Obituary – Pru Bryant

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Pru Bryant (left, with Patrick Moore) on 14th June 2014.  Although she was not a chess player, Pru was for a long time in charge of ticket sales for the Hastings Premier Tournament.  Her bright personality and conversation made her a favourite with many visitors to the event. Pru was a keen traveller and visited many parts of the globe. In recent years her mobility was seriously impaired by arthritis and she became largely housebound. Pru was the mother of Marc Bryant, former member of Hastings Chess Congress Committee and long-term associate of and participant in the event. Our sympathy goes to Marc who had looked after his mother in the last years.
Pru’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 1st July 2014 at Hastings Crematorium at 11.00am.  Enquiries and flowers to Towners, Norman Road, St. Leonards Tel 01424 436386
