As­sis­tant school teacher left her mark on Goovi­gen

Central Telegraph - - LIFE | MY TOWN - GOOVI­GEN PETREA GE­ORGE news­room@cen­tral­tele­graph.com.au

IT IS WITH great sad­ness we learned of the pass­ing of Mur­rie Whaites (Stone).

Mur­rie came to Goovi­gen as an as­sis­tant school teacher where she met and mar­ried Colin Stone.

They suc­cess­fully es­tab­lished and ran the lo­cal hard­ware store for many years..

Mur­rie was very in­volved with fundrais­ing for the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, she es­pe­cially loved the Miss Ba­nana Shire Ball and rais­ing money for the Com­mu­nity Hall.

Mur­rie and Colin raised five chil­dren who all re­ceived their pri­mary school­ing at Goovi­gen.

Later on in life Mur­rie re­tired to the Sun­shine Coast area.

Our sin­cere sym­pa­thy to all the family.

Morn­ing tea

GOOVI­GEN Progress As­so­ci­a­tion held its morn­ing tea at Goovi­gen His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety last Thurs­day.

A good num­ber of res­i­dents and vis­i­tors turned up to have a look at the his­tory sur­round­ing Goovi­gen.

A yummy morn­ing tea was en­joyed by all. Well done to a fan­tas­tic and mo­ti­vated group of peo­ple.

The next Cof­fee Group Morn­ing tea will be held in the com­mu­nity hall on Au­gust 24 at 9.30am.

Come or a chat, a game of cards or try brain teasers.
