Margaret Peterson was well known in the Angle Vale community, not the least as a result of her tireless work with the Lions Club of Angle Vale.
She was one of the key founding members of this Lions Club, enabling the club to Charter in August 2014, and was the inaugural treasurer for the club, a role she filled with diligence from 2014 until 2016.
Margaret consistently attended forums and conferences to support Lions generally and the Angle Vale Club.
She was instrumental in a number of projects the club achieved, most notably her commitment to the Lions Hearing Dog project.
Margaret relished this opportunity to assist and was a constant visitor to the owners of the first dog the club supported.
The club is now supporting a second dog for a Northern resident and has been allocated a male labra-doodle.
The Lions Club of Angle Vale has recently decided to nominate the name “Peterson” for this puppy in memory of Margaret.
Margaret was a quiet achiever who could always be counted on to participate in whatever the activity the club was embarking upon.
She was liberal with her praise, thoughtful with her comments, had a wonderful sense of humour and enjoyed life to the fullest-with particular passion for dancing, often sharing stories of her lessons with the club.
It is the small things Margaret did every day the club will remember, her sage counsel, quick wit and laughter.
Margaret was fond of saying, “Remember the Good Times”.
The Lions Club of Angle Vale was privileged to have shared some of the good times with Margaret and members will remember her fondly.
As requested by family, the Lions Club of Angle Vale has made a donation to Arthritis SA on her behalf.
