Monica O'Connor

It is with sadness that we hear of the passing of Monica in February. Monica was a highly valued long-time member of our club leaving in 2015, due to illness. Monica was always a member to put her hand up when help was needed!
Our sympathy goes out to her family.

Thanks to Sue Zimmer who supplied the photo of Monica taken late last year.
