Lady Gore-Booth

We were very sorry to learn of the death on 2nd February of Lady Gore-Booth, whose late husband Lord Gore-Booth was President of the Society from 1966 to 1978. Our former Chairman Philip Porter is one of many who remember Pat Gore-Booth with great fondness:”A most delightful lady. I have very fond memories of her company and, as you so rightly say, she and Dame Jean were very much a double act at the Dinners – two ladies we very much looked up to and seemed to be on a different level, yet were actually very human and loved all the humour.”
