20/02/08 - Sheena Munro (nee Mackenzie)

FORMER corporal accountant Sheena Munro has died at Seacroft Care Home, aged 85.

Mrs Munro, who was born in Nairn, Scotland, leaves two sons Malcolm and Donald, four grandchildren Corrina, Sally-Anne, Robbie and Kirsty.

At the start of the Second World War, Sheena joined the WAAF and sailed to Cairo in 1941.

There, in the comparitive safety of Cairo and its surrounds, she met her future husband Roddie Munro, a professional footballer with Glasgow Rangers.

Sheena and Roddie brought up their two sons in Hauxton, just outside Cambridge. Both Sheena and Roddie worked for Fisons and it was there they had some of their happiest times, and Sheena built some of her happiest memories.

She enjoyed walking in the open countryside and socialising at the local club house.

Sheena retired to Skegness in 2002 after a series of strokes, where she was comforted by the kind and caring staff of Seacroft Care Home.

She was happy by the sea, as it reminded her of her childhood in Nairn.

The funeral service, conducted by Christine Anderson, was held at Boston Crematorium.

Funeral directors were Frank Wood and Sons.
