Sharkbait mourns teammate's passing

Post date: Aug 09, 2013 5:21:5 PM

Vicky Geoffroy, a member of the Women's travel team Sharkbait, passed on Thursday morning Aug 8th. Below is the Facebook notice posted by her youth FH club (Rye FH Club).

The hockey world lost a true friend with the passing of Vicky Geoffroy yesterday morning, from cancer. Her steady and calm demeanor that commanded the defense on the field was contrasted by her sincere smile, quick wit and firecracker personality off [the field]. She was that unselfish player that a coach dreams of, ready to sacrifice her body to break up the play, her position so someone could get on the field, and her time to grow the game. The Rye Hockey Club was privileged to have Vicky as a member during the ladies' inaugural season when she was an integral part of building the team's foundation. She is forever in our hearts and our memories as an amazing teammate, organizer and friend. Information on her memorial service is below:
