Louise Wibe

We are sorry to report that Louise Wibe, a long standing member and leader of our library, passed away on Saturday, July 30th.
Louise helped make our library what it is today and continued to cater get-togethers and ensure that the gardens were in tip top shape.
Her sense of humour and optimistic outlook were always a pleasure to behold. RIP Louise, you will be sorely missed. Arrangements will be announced.
