After Phillip's sad news came another one. I had an email on Monday from Cally, Dawn Rowles' youngest daughter - saying that Dawn had "died of multiple organ failure on Saturday 29th May. She had been poorly for a while and even if the organ failure didn't get her the cancer would have". Posting as Morgana (or Picktywitch), Dawn ruffled a few feathers from time to time, and gave Rob and the Moderators (wouldn't that be a great name for a band!) all sorts of issues to deal with, but she was always worth reading! Her poetry was always interesting, and we continued to correspond about poetry after she left the Forum. I also picked her knowledgeable brain from time to time about horticulture. Vale Picktywitch.

Sad news indeed. Although we had different opinions on many subjects, she and I always seemed to “get on” better off the forum, and we exchanged many emails about life, Longford and other things - she was always interesting to correspond with. RIP Dawn.

I was still only on the foothills of learning about Coventry and the forum when she left but it was clear that she knew a lot about a lot and I would have liked to converse more. Sad news.

Sad to hear - I liked reading Morgana's posts as we had much in common. We both grew up in Radford, though from her posts I think she was a couple of years younger than me. I wonder if Rowles was her maiden name? If so, I probably went to school with one or two of her siblings.

Very sad news. Morgana was the beginning of this forum for me, we had a lot in common, coming from the same district. Her life had intermingled with mine in the past that made me think she was older than she may have been, but I judged her to be a cornerstone of this forum. This forum will miss her information of Coventry, and a friend sadly.

Sad to hear about Morgana. She was on quite a lot when I first joined HC. I had wondered what happened to her when she stopped posting. I notice some of her last posts were about the City of Culture.

Sad news indeed. I missed Morgana on the forum, she was a link with Longford and with a Coventry that is long gone. Rest in Peace, Dawn.

Sorry to see the news of Morgana's passing. Always loved reading her posts, so informative and interesting. I was so disappointed when she decided to leave the Forum. God bless Morgana

Sad news to hear that Morgana has passed away. Dawn had a wealth of information on Coventry and was an informative member of the forum. She was also passionate about horticulture and I was privileged to see the garden she was so proud of. RIP Dawn.

I had an email today from Cally, Dawn's daughter, saying that she had checked out these posts and asking me to thank you all for your kind words. Thumbs up

Not been on the site for a long time. Come back to see some awful news. RIP Morgana
