Muriel Wilson

MURIEL WILSON

It is with great sadness for us to report that Muriel Wilson died on Monday 9th October 2017

Muriel was a founder member of Hamble Valley 40 years ago helping to form the club after Jim, her husband helped to form Hamble Valley Rotary Club. She was the second President of the club and has been President twice, in the following years. Muriel became District Chairman for 1993-1994 and represented the District at the Convention in Sydney in that year. Inner Wheel was a big part of Muriel`s life but she was a pillar of the community around her home in Botley and Fareham. In appreciation of her dedication to assisting others she was awarded the MBE for services to nursing, Rotary Paul Harris medal and, appropriately, an International Margarette Golding Award.
Muriel was an amazing lady who did not talk about herself. She helped so many people in her life which is borne out by the citation for Her Margarette Golding Award and worked, tirelessly beside Jim for the good of the younger generations.
She will be greatly missed by us all.

President Jane Ingram
