Margaret Purves GC, only female member of the Association, dies

Margaret had been a member of the Association for over fifty years. Her death this morning is the end of an era. Margaret's keen mind and interest in all that went on in the world around her made her a great conversationalist and a much loved member of the Association. She served as a trustee for many years and even in later years as her health deteriorated she retained her very keen mind. Margaret passed away early this morning, following a short illness. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with James, Rebecca and Alison, her children, as well as with her grandchildren. We will all miss her greatly.
