It is with much regret to tell you all I was told
very sad news of the passing of Mr Joe Sester on the
22 August 2022.
Joe, a very dedicated rosarian and his wife Jo
joined QRS on 1.10.1961 (61 years ago) .
For many years Joe sold rose bushes at our Autumn
and Spring Shows. He was a commercial grower back
in those days - always helping, setting up and
unfolding our major shows. Even after he retired
from commercial rose growing, Joe still came to our
shows, even our monthly shows. Joe was a huge
supporter of QRS.
Both Joe and Jo came to the pruning day last June at
Ted Hayes and after that went and visited Tony
Stallwood at the home, Tony was thrilled. I was
fortunate to see and speak to him at our Christmas
in July Luncheon at Richlands Hotel.
It is so sad, RIP JOE, you will be greatly missed.
