We are saddened to announce the passing of Rosemary Davies (Brucelm) in hospital on Wednesday 19th September. Rosemary was a past President, Secretary, Treasurer and member of Northern English Setter Society, a member of the Association for nearly 50 years as well as actively serving on our Committee.
With partner Bernard their first Show Champion was Mindenday Miss Moss a blue Belton bitch bred by Mrs & Mrs Armstead and sired by Sh Ch Mindenday Music Master. He was also the sire of their second Sh Ch, Extrovert of Engsett At Brucelm an orange Belton bitch bred by Mr & Mrs Armstead and Mr & Mrs Wheeler. Their first homebred Show Champion was Brucelm Devon Loch sired by Brucelm Christmas Herald and dam Sh Ch Extrovert of Engsett At Brucelm and from those early successes Brucelm became a well-known and respected kennel. Rosemary was well loved, kind, very approachable and would happily find time to give knowledgeable help, advice and encouragement to all who asked.
Our sincere sympathies go to family and friends, she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Further details to follow.
