In Memoriam – Denise Ferry

Squash Canada is deeply saddened by the passing of longtime National Referee Denise Ferry. She was a regular fixture at Canadian Squash Championships & Canada Winter Games as well as a longtime volunteer for Squash NL.

“It is with great sadness that Squash NL marks the passing of Denise Ferry on February 11. Denise had a multi-decade relationship with squash and Squash NL going back at least 30 years. She maintained her credentials as a long-time National level referee and officiated at events ranging from the Pan Am Games, to the Canadian Squash Championships, to the Canada Games, to our Provincial Championships and various local tournaments. She was also a Provincial Assessor. In addition to her officiating contribution and until her “retirement” from the Squash NL Board in 2018, Denise was the longest serving member on the Board. She could always be counted on to give a helping hand and was always available and willing to contribute with advice and encouragement, or simply to “get stuff done.” For more than 30 years, Denise was an icon to the sport of squash. She gave selflessly not only to the local squash community here in Newfoundland but also nationally and internationally. We will miss her greatly.” — Jeff Tulk, Squash NL President
