The End of an Era!

Door person extraordinaire “Viv” is no longer with us having recently departed for a better place.

For a long time Viv was the face of Cockburn Basketball Stadium. The first person you met when you entered the stadium and often the last one you said goodbye to as you went home after your game. She was the one that took your money and gave you a ticket when you came in to play. She was the one that sometimes told you off when you stepped out of line. She was also the one to patch up our junior players and give a quick hug when they were injured.

Viv was at the door for the junior and the senior competitions. She looked forward each year to be at the door for the at home games for the WABL competition. The till did not always balance straight away but it was always sorted before she went home. Viv fronted up for every SBL season when her beloved Cougars were playing at home. Viv also liked to help out in the office and as long as things were being done her way, the way they had always been, she would not argue with you.

Viv is gone but not forgotten. And as we make changes in the way we run basketball at Cockburn we sometimes can’t help thinking would Viv have approved? After many, many years she is reunited with Bob and both will be looking over Cockburn with an approving smile.

Vivian has left the stadium – Her memory will linger on!

For those that would like to attend, Viv's funeral is on Monday 15th February at 12pm, Fremantle Cemetery's West Chapel.
