  13. Fond memories of Maie and times spent in the L.F.C. kitchen raising funds for the Club.
    Our days always started with “a hug”. Many laughs and happy times were shared with Maie who had a happy disposition, friendly and supportive, and always willing to share her knowledge with new members.
    Maie was well liked and respected by everyone. Thanks Maie for all the work you did over many years. Well deserved recognition being awarded Life Membership of our Club, but most of all thanks for your friendship.
    Maie remembered with a smile in particular by everyone who worked with her at the L.F.N.C.
    Warmest condolences to all her family.
