In Memory of Grace Rolleston Gardner

We are sorry to hear about the passing of Grace Rolleston Gardner, the mother of Ski Club president, Frank Gardner. 

Something of a pioneer in her time, Grace won a scholarship to Cambridge University, remained in London throughout the Blitz and became only the third woman ever to be offered a job with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Grace was also an avid skier, as seen in this lovely photo of her in Austria in 1954.

Our thoughts are with Frank and his family during this time.
