For those of you who missed the announcement on Monday. I’m afraid I’ve some very sad news to share.
Maggie Tear passed away suddenly of a massive stroke. Ron has lost his soulmate.
Ron and Maggie Tear have through the years become good friends to Edmonton Camera Club. They’ve shared their fantastic images of far flung places and of course of various parts of the UK.
They’ve judged our images countless times, giving kind critique. It’s always been Ron & Maggie, we rarely saw one without the other. Maggie was an accomplished photographer, achieving her LRPS and CPAGB.
I first met Maggie in 1980, she was one of the tutors on my college course. We lost touch for some years but reconnected when she came along to the camera club with Ron to give a presentation.
Maggie really was one of the kindest and most caring people you could meet. During this pandemic she had helped the vulnerable in the community with their shopping and had spent time supporting people who needed a listening ear.
Ron has invited anyone who would like to make a donation in her memory to do so to Lake District Calvert Trust. It welcomes guests with disabilities to their dedicated centre, so that they can enjoy the benefits of outdoor activities in a safe and accessible, yet challenging environment. The Lake District was one of her favourite places so it’s a very fitting charity. https://www.calvertlakes.org.uk/
RIP Maggie, we’ll miss you x
