Pool player’s black armband tribute as Su dies aged 39
1:08pm Thursday 3rd January 2013 in Keighley
A pool player from Keighley has died aged just 39.
Su Reynard had been battling cervical cancer for two years, and died at Airedale Hospital.
Her mother, Christine, said: “She was very bubbly and outgoing – she always put everyone else first rather than herself.
“She worked through most of her illness – she didn’t want to sit at home.”
Miss Reynard also leaves behind her partner, Timothy Pearson, and 11-year-old son, Kallum. Her father, Bernard, died in 2002.
Miss Reynard, who lived in Aylesbury Street, Ingrow, was a member of the Pilky’s Club pool team.
Her mother said she used to compete in contests in Great Yarmouth.
One of her friends, pool player Chris Melling, who won the Most Valuable Player award in the recent Mosconi Cup, wore a black armband during the competition as a tribute to Su.
He also pledged to donate his winner’s medal in her honour.
Miss Reynard was born locally and educated at Holy Family Catholic School.
She was an office worker at Merralls Spinning and latterly at McDowell Distribution Ltd, a Keighley-based haulage and distribution company.
The funeral service took place last month (December) at St Anne’s Roman Catholic Church in North Street. Miss Reynard was cremated at Oakworth Crematorium.
