It’s Duchen ( no T) I think.

Met her quite a few times in my MWTS days , very devoted long time supporter and financial contributor ( TPA’s) to the club , notably Foran.

Thanks for posting.

A life well lived and she'll be missed by many.

The forum even got a mention in the article...

...As the "Silvertails" Manly supporter's forum noted, she "always enjoyed travelling to watch her beloved Sea Eagles play, be it locally, interstate, or overseas". ....

I followed her on Twitter ( had the odd argument as well ) and noted about 6 months ago that she gave all her Manly memorabilia away , AND, there was a ****load to give.

Jerseys , framed jerseys , signed boots the list went on.

I knew she wasn’t well and must admit at the time I did think that she was approaching the end.

RIP Brenda

For those of you who might be interested but don’t(or can’t) read the SMH.

Thank you for that most inspirational story of this beautiful Sea eagle Soul Brenda

Great clubs are made great by great players, great officials , great sponsors and great club members that make great contributions like Brenda has

I hope that each Manly supporter reading this can contribute to the greatness of our Legendary club by becoming club members in 2021

RIP Brenda . Thank you for your inspirational support and contribution to our great club the Legendary Manly sea eagles :h:

Her boys were pupils at Sydney Grammar. I recall Steve (probably) was a hotshot swimmer for the school, c.1972-73.

So how did she get her money? Worked for nothing if you believe article.

I met her once or twice, chatted on twitter a few times.

Only been the past 3 or 4 years i was aware of her importance to the club.

Her family have also done very well. One son lives in the Omnia penthouse at KX - aka the former Crest Hotel.

Thanks

@ellakasmar might like to make some comments her family was very close to Brenda
Amazing woman she was. She was so humble that so many of us who became so close with her over the year's didn't know half of the stuff she had done. Sad that she didn't see Kieran (possibly) come home, but I am sure she is cheering from above
