Georgia Heth 1956 – 2023

Georgia Heth 1956 – 2023

By In News, Official announcements, Tribute On 27th December 2023

The WBF is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Georgia Heth on 26 December.

Georgia was elected to the WBF Executive Council in 2009 and served until 2018. During that time she served on various committees: Bylaws, Disciplinary, Women’s, and Management. Georgia helped with the first disciplinary code and chaired several disciplinary hearings.

She worked with the President, Treasurer, General Counsel and our outside counsel to overhaul of the WBF Statutes and Bylaws.

Georgia was elected to the WBF Committee of Honour in 2016 during the Championships in Wroclaw.

Georgia will be much missed by her colleagues and many friends within the WBF and we send our deepest condolences to her family – her sister Helen who accompanied her to most WBF Championships, and her son Kortlan of whom she was so proud.
