Thelma McDonald


It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the news that Thelma McDonald passed away peacefully yesterday (March 6, 2017) evening around supper time.  No obituary has been published so keep your eyes out for that.  If I locate it, I will pass it along.


Thank you Jennie Wolter

Email Message from Lisa Kampel:


I've only met Marion once (at her 90th birthday party).  She was so excited to be at the meeting among her fellow stitchers.  I will always remember the moment, how happy she was and how excited she was to see what everyone was working on.  Thank you Marion, for being a founding member of the CGNFA, your contributions to the guild are far reaching.
