President & Founder of the Meniere's Society

Marie B Nobbs MBE

1 Feb 1922 - 13 Aug 2016

It is with deep regret that we have to inform you that the Meniere’s Society President and Founder Mrs Marie Nobbs MBE sadly passed away on 13 August 2016. Our thoughts are with Marie’s husband, Gordon, and their family at this sad time.

Marie founded the Meniere’s Society in 1984 after she met people who had set up a telephone self-help network for Ménière’s sufferers in the Netherlands. With support and encouragement from other hard of hearing colleagues, Marie decided to establish a similar support group in the UK. The Meniere’s Society acquired charitable status in 1987. Since then the Society has gone from strength to strength. Marie continued to be involved in the work of the Society until her recent stroke.

The funeral will be held on Friday 2 September 2016 at Tunbridge Wells Crematorium. Please contact the Meniere’s Society on 01306 876883 if you would like further details.

At the request of Marie’s family we ask that no flowers are sent. If you wish to make a donation to the Meniere’s Society in memory of Marie, and pay tribute to her by helping us continue with the vital work of the Society, please visit or contact the Meniere’s Society on 01306 876883.
