The Islanders were shocked to hear of the sudden passing of Sylvia Tegg.
She was a keen bowler and joined the IBC with her husband John in the year 2000.
Sylvia had recently served the club as the IBC Ladies Captain.
John and Sylvia had been married 54 years and were loyal and active members of the club,
even when living at a distance out at Hermitage.
She was taken ill whilst out on Thursday afternoon and rushed to hospital.
Sylvia was 73 when she died at 2am on Friday the 11th of October.
Her funeral will be at Reading Crematorium on Tuesday 22nd October at 2:30pm.
Our sincere condolences go to John and family.

Declining numbers has sadly forced our friends to withdraw from the KL Div 2 West.
This announcement was made public on Thursday 23rd May 2013.
How sad it is to finally say goodbye to the Ron Bowell.
Ron will always be remembered by many as a man that really loved his bowls.
Sadly ill-health forced him to give up playing some years ago and we then saw less of him as time went by.
He was always helpful and encouraging to new bowlers and we forget perhaps his wide-ranging and committed involvement helping to run the club in times past.
Very soon after he joined Ron took on the job of the Men's Section Bowls Secretary,
(this was at a time long before his job was split up into a number of parts).
With his wife Mavis as the Ladies Section Secretary, the club was indeed in very safe hands.
Ron was 84 when he died on Monday 25th of March.
His funeral will be at Reading Crematorium on Thursday 11th April at 1:45pm.
Our sincere condolences to Mavis and family.
