In memory of Muriel Pritchard MBE

In Memory of Muriel Pritchard MBE
Our oldest and much-loved member, Muriel Pritchard, MBE, died, after a short illness, on 12 November 2018, aged 99. Muriel was a committed and passionate Soroptimist . She was Club President from 1976-78, Club Secretary for many years and when she was no longer able to attend meetings, she continued to follow and support Soroptimist activities closely. She was awarded the MBE in 2001 in recognition of her tireless ‘services to the community in Bangor’ and was very proud to be awarded Honorary Membership of SI Bangor and District in 1994. The Club tribute to Muriel on her 90th birthday was titled ‘A Soroptimist Timepiece’ and finished with these words: ‘Some people are like a good watch, open faced, pure gold, quietly busy and full of good works’. She will be missed greatly.
