Rosezillah Fox

 
TCUGB Grade A  
 
Sadly, Rose passed away on Thursday 30th July 2009 at the age of 79 years.  An astonishing lady and a great friend, she will be deeply missed by all of us at Yiheyuan.
 
As well as teaching dance and Tai Chi for many years, Rose taught us, by her own quiet example,  how to live our lives with kindness and compassion, with courage and dignity.  She taught us to honour ourselves and to honour others and now we honour her with our tribute.
