Remembering Margaret

a table of memories of Margaret with the Op Shop set up in the backgroundA celebration of the life of Margaret McDermid was held at NUC on Friday, 28 January 2011.

Margaret was widely known as "The Op Shop" lady. She was instrumental in developing the Op Shop into the dynamic, open and friendly place of hospitality it is today, including managing it for over 10 years.




Family and friends gathered to remember this persevering, kind and generous woman, and in a fitting tribute, to bring out the Op Shop racks and set up for Saturday's regular opening hours.

Thank you, Margaret, for all that you shared with so many...and God bless you.
