Vale Marilyn Beaverstock

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Marilyn passed away in Hospital on 14 July after a long illness.

Marilyn was one of the 4 founding members of the ACT Vets along with Keith Davis, Barry Cole and myself. She was Secretary/Treasurer until the Vets were Incorporated, then she became the Treasurer. She was passionate with the Vets & helped it grow to what it is today. She did some racing with the Vets and won a number of medals at the AVCC and various Masters Games. She was also a keen cycle-tourist.

She toured through Europe on many occasions. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Kelli & her husband of 52 years.

The Funeral for Marilyn will be held at 10am on Thursday 21st July at William Cole Funerals in Belconnen.
