Passing of Bev Makinson

Passing of Bev Makinson
31 August 2017

It is with great sadness that we advise the passing of Life Member Bev Makinson this morning.


Bev was an outstanding sportswoman, representing New Zealand at both Softball and Hockey (1956, 1967).  She was a long standing member of the Monowai Club and, as a pitcher, played an integral role in achieving 7 National Club and 5 Provincial Championship titles between 1959 and 1968. 


Bev was also an administrator, as Secretary of the Canterbury Softball Association from 1957 to 1964 and then joining the Junior Advisory Board in the 70’s.  Bev was made a Life Member of CSA and in 1998 was inducted into the NZ Softball Hall of Fame.


Bev is truly a legend of our sport and we are all the richer for her contributions. She will be missed. R.I.P.
