LAWRENCE, JOY, died on June 8, 1999, aged 85. As Joy Liebert, she was a capable all-rounder and the youngest member of the England women's touring team to Australasia, in 1934-35, where she appeared in the first four Tests ever played by women. She also kept a diary, which used the word fun a lot. She met her future husband on the boat home, and later settled in Dorset, concentrating on motherhood, painting and her love of nature.
