We are deeply saddened by the passing of Margaret McClure and wanted to share with you some of the tributes we have received.
“When I heard of the tragic, and untimely death of dear Margaret McClure I am not ashamed to admit I choked and shed a few tears. I have known Margaret for well over 25 years. I was a member of the Committee, of the Old Voluntary Society, that first appointed her. Although it’s me saying it as shouldn’t – didn’t we do well? We couldn’t have appointed anyone better. Right from the very start she started on the rest of her life’s quest to improve the lives of visually impaired people throughout South Lakeland, and once again didn’t she do well? There are scores of VIPs in South Lakes who owe her a debt of gratitude. Oh! How we’ll miss her. Of course Sight Advice will find a replacement – no one is indispensable – but it will not find anybody as hard working, dedicated and committed to bettering the lives of the blind and partially sighted people in such a sensitive and understanding way as Margaret. Rest in peace Margaret you have earned it.”
“I am shocked and saddened to read the death of Margaret….I got to know her through her work with the Macular Degeneration Clinic at WGH, where she was a friendly presence when I was first diagnosed”
“Margaret was kind and helpful to me when I came to Sight Advice in 2011”
“I am so sorry to hear of Margaret’s passing. She was a wonderful, caring and thoughtful lady who everyone spoke very highly of… she will be missed greatly”
We plan to hold an afternoon in memory of Margaret and will share the date with you in due course.
