Missy Jasmin Has Passed Away

Missy Jasmin, 55, of Rutland and the Rutland Country Club passed away early Wednesday, April 19, 2006 at her home in Rutland following a two-month battle with cancer.

Missy has been a very active participant in VSWGA golf events for many years.  She has also served on the VSWGA board of directors and the nominating committee.  She has also been a team member on the Vermont Tri-State team for many years and a teammate on many winning Buxton teams for Rutland.  She was a past president of the Women's Association of Rutland Country Club.

Many of us who knew Missy admired her for her courage and attitude in dealing with an arthritis condition which made it difficult for her to grip the club.  She never let it slow her down and played an excellent game with a handicap of 15, a brilliant short game, and a fierce competitive spirit.  She could always be counted on to win points for Vermont in the Tri-States tournament.  She had a great sense of humor and was always ready with a wise-crack or two.  Missy will be greatly missed, not only by the Rutland girls, but by all Vermont women golfers.

Visiting hours will be at the Clifford Funeral Home, 2 Washington St, Rutland between the hours of 12 to 3pm on Saturday, April 22.  A celebration of life will follow.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Vermont State Women's Golf Association for Junior Golf or the Community Cancer Center, in care of Clifford Funeral Home.
