Sad News – a farewell to two valuable members

During the past week we have lost two very valuable members, both contributing to our organisation in different ways, but without members contributing in all fields, our Association would not function.

Mrs Elva Hansen: Honorary Life Member who joined the Association in 1952 and worked her way through branches, divisions and State Level.  Mrs Hansen held the positions of Division President 1982 – 1985, International Officer 1985 – 1986 and then Magazine Editor 1986 – 1989.  Mrs Hansen also served on the Cockburn Lodge during her time with the Association, attended many State Conferences and ACWW World Conferences.  Our sympathy goes to her family.  She will be greatly missed by all.

Mrs Pam Beatson: immediate past State Treasurer.  Mrs Beatson joined the Association in 2006 with Leschenault/South Bunbury Branch.  She held positions at Branch level and her passion for the Association soon saw her nominating to come on to the Management Committee of the Association.  In July 2015, Mrs Beatson accepted the challenge of becoming State Treasurer for the Association, a position she held until she became gravely ill in late March 2018.  During her illness she was in the prayers of many members and associates who knew her.  Our sympathy is extended to Pam’s husband, sons and their partners and Pam’s mother and father and family.
