13 November 2014.

We are very sad to hear that Joyce Litschi has died, aged 96. Joyce was a founding member and past Chairman of the Sutton Poyntz Society, a long-standing Borough Councillor, and Mayor of Weymouth in 1980/81. She and her husband Fredy lived at Camelot in Sutton Road, a house that they made very much their own. Our village newsletter a year ago featured an article on Joyce and Fredy, when they left for a retirement home after 47 years at Camelot. Fredy is still alive, and they have a daughter Isolde and 2 grandchidren. Our sympathies of course go at this time to the family.

 

Postscript: Fredy died in February 2016. Their daughter, Isolde, extremely kindly donated money to the village to fund the History Board, which stands at the top end of the pond as a memorial to Joyce and Fredy, as a guide for visitors to the village they both loved so greatly.
