Obituary - Kaye McDonald

It is with great sadness that I inform the club of the passing of Kaye McDonald, wife of long standing Committee Member and club stalwart, Ivor. I have known Ivor and Kaye since I joined the NIOC in 1983 and before with the RSPB.  Ivor and Kaye were attendees at nearly every club meeting as far as I can remember and I know Ivor will feel Kaye's loss greatly. I know I can say that the club has lost a faithful member and she will be missed very much by us all. Our condolences to Ivor and their son Keith.

Garry Wilkinson, Chairman
