Woodend Landcare is sad to report the death of a very good friend of our organisation Marjorie Wilton.
Marjorie, who had been coping with cancer for about 12 months, died peacefully in her sleep overnight on Sunday.
Marjorie had not been so active in recent times, but for some years she had provided the home-made cakes, biscuits and slices that made our Working Bee morning teas renowned.
Prior to that, she served on the Committee, where her good sense, intelligence, and calmness were of very great value.
She made a donation towards the purchase of the non-indigenous trees that were planted in the “park like” area along the Creek between Pyke St and Bowen St.
Marjorie was also very involved in many community activities within Woodend, and was very generous with her time and skills. There are undoubtedly many people whom she helped in practical ways, but ways which were never revealed to others.
Marjorie was a dear friend to me personally; she was also a true lover of this town and of the countryside we live in. She has asked that her ashes be scattered over Mount Macedon.
We send our thoughts to Marjorie’s family.
On behalf of Woodend Landcare Inc
