A much respected Rugby woman who dedicated her life to others has died aged 90.

Vivien Rizk, of Hillmorton Road, had a stroke on September 4.

The former Rugbeian of the Year Award was well known in the local community, especially for her tireless work with the hospital and health services.

Her daughter, Meri, said: “She was a remarkable woman.

“She was dedicated to her family first but also had a very strong social conscience and wanted to be useful whatever her age. She was full of life and never thought of herself as superior to anyone. She will be missed hugely.”
