President Probus Club of Springs 2018 -2019
Born in Durban, settled with my parents in Lusaka - what was then Northern Rhodesia – in 1952. I completed my schooling at Jean Rennie high school and spent a year at Business College in Lusaka learning bookkeeping, shorthand and typing. After college I was employed by The Farmers Co-op in Accounts. I married in 1962 and my eldest son was born the following year. In March 1965 we returned to South Africa to Springs, where my husband’s family were originally from, I had just found out that I was pregnant with my second son who was born in December that year. My husband found employment on Daggafontein Mine where we stayed until the mine closed in 1969. We were blessed with a daughter in 1968. I was employed at Woodhead Kempo in charge of costing until 1973. I then worked in accounts at FMC Linkbelt until they closed down and then for a while at another engineering firm until my husband decided to start his own engineering business, TA Engineering, at the end of 1975. I then worked with my husband managing the general office duties and was also delivery girl. After five years I retired to be an at-home- mom for my children who were at high school and needed to be ferried around with their after school activities.

I joined Justine as a consultant in the mid 80’s although I am not as active in getting sales now, I am still with them. I enjoy gardening and was chairlady and later treasurer of our local garden club until we closed the club last year due to falling numbers. I enjoy most genres of music and I am involved with my church. I was widowed in 2000 when I lost both my husband and a son in a fixed wing aircraft accident. I still live in Springs
