 Moira Thomas

coffee morning for moira thomas

The Inner Wheel Club of Kirkcudbright are sorry to announce the sudden death in December 2017 of one of our best loved members, Moira Thomas. Moira, who was 82, joined the Inner Wheel Club of Singapore in 1987 and was President there for 2 years from 1990 to 1992 before returning to the UK in 1993. She loved the friendship and values of Inner Wheel and enthusiastically involved herself in active roles, meetings and events. She was always cheerful and welcoming, and her sparkling personality will be missed by all.

 A coffee morning was held with her husband Bill who had written such moving words, with gentle humour, about her and their past Diamond Wedding Anniversary together. Fabulous location with stunning views and hospitality second to none. Thanks to all who attended and gave generously to her requested charity, Starlight Childrens Foundation.
