It was with sadness that the Marysville members heard of the death of popular Alexandra and Dalhousie District Life Member Gwenda Martin. She was a stalwart of the golfing world and even in her later years showed great interest in the local golfing scene. Her expertise for numbers was legendary and she assisted with the cards and results many times at the Marysville ladies Bowl and tournament. Gwenda was just a few weeks short of 101 years of age. Our condolences to Gwenda’s family who were with her when she died peacefully.
