It is with great sadness that Fencing North has to advise that on Tuesday 11th February 2020, Gaylene Ongley, Treasurer and Secretary, and heart and soul of the Auckland Amateur Fencing Association (now Fencing North), passed away.❤️
Gaylene and her husband Alex truly dedicated their lives to the running of our wonderful sport for many many years, and she was a mainstay of New Zealand Fencing .
Gaylene's funeral will be held on Tuesday the 18th of February at at Purewa Crematorium 100 St. Johns Road (Auckland).
I can also think of no more fitting tribute to an amazing lady (and friend) than for a record turnout for the tournament that bears her name - The Ongley, on the 14th of March at Trusts.
I hope to see you all there.
A death notice in Herald will be published this Saturday.
