A long-time resident of Jolimont, Asquith taught physical education at Aranmore Catholic College in Leederville for a number of years.

A gifted sportswoman, she represented WA in softball and basketball before turning her hand to cricket in her early thirties when she joined Willows (later Subiaco).

Asquith debuted for WA against Victoria in Perth in January 1962 as a diminutive wicketkeeper and useful lower-order batter.

She remained a member of every State team for 10 consecutive years to 1970/71 and was vice-captain for three seasons, including when WA played the touring England side at Rosalie Park in December 1968.

Asquith served as Secretary of the WA Women’s Cricket Association for several years in the late 1960’s and was WA’s delegate to the Australian Women’s Cricket Council during the same period.

Her significant contribution both on and off the field saw her awarded Life Membership of the WAWCA in 1972.

She will be fondly remembered as a humble lady who played cricket, and life, with great character, determination and integrity.
