Obituary

Robbie Segal

Socialist Party members will be saddened to hear about the death of Robbie Segal on Thursday 13 December.

Eric, her partner, writes that in the hospital:

"She was conscious and aware of what was happening. In fact she took part in the discussion with the consultant.

"Her family were at her side till the end and she was not distressed. We played the Internationale on her iPad as she died.

"Some NHS employees who looked after Rob during her recent stay in hospital, had previously worked for Tesco and were represented by her, and broke down.

"I am reminded of a poem by Heinrich Heine:

I am the sword. I am the flame.

I lit the way for you when it was dark

And when the battle raged, I fought in front

In the first row...

We have no time for mourning

The trumpets sound anew

A new fight looms... "


Robbie's funeral will take place on Monday 7 January 2013 at Hawkinge cemetery, Aerodrome Road, Folkestone, CT18 7AG at 11am.
