The Mitcham Football Club are deeply saddened by the news that Fiona Gilchrist passed away peacefully after a long and very brave battle with cancer.
Fiona was a terrific woman but more importantly a terrific wife and mother who was adored not only by her family and friends, but by so many at our club.
The battle Fiona fought in particular over the last few months was incredible and an inspiration to anyone that had the privilege of knowing her. Her legacy is something that will live on with us all for a very long time.
On behalf of the entire club we send our condolences and love to Jamie, Mitch, Lachie and the extended family in what is such a tough time for all of them.
Funeral announcements will be made available in the coming days.
(President, Mitcham FC)
