Sheila Fraser

I recently mentioned that the River Crescent Residents’ Association AGM that I attended last Sunday was tinged with much sadness as one of its leading members, Sheila Fraser, passed away the previous Wednesday, after a short illness.
Today, at Dundee Crematorium, along with her neighbours, her family and many friends, we remembered Sheila and celebrated her life.   Sheila had two careers – firstly as a police officer in Fife, and later, a school teacher in Dundee – but above all, she was a much loved mother, grandmother, neighbour and friend.   Sheila was always cheerful, positive and smiling – qualities that Rev Bob Mallinson highlighted today.  
Sheila was a lovely lady and we will miss her.

River Crescent Residents’ AGM

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking at the River Crescent Residents’ AGM at the Botanic Garden Education Centre.
The meeting was tinged with much sadness as Sheila Fraser, former Chair of the Residents’ Association, passed away last Wednesday, after a short illness.   Sheila was a lovely lady and everyone in the street knew her – she’ll be so sadly missed.
Apart from paying tribute to Sheila, I updated the meeting on the Harris Academy decant and rebuilding project, the West End Christmas Fortnight arrangements, the new primary/nursery schools building project on the former Logie Secondary site, bus services, roads resurfacing, the Friends of Riverside Nature Park AGM taking place on 6th September, and WESHA’s recent sports funding success.
