Eulogy for Meg Mullock
The eulogy delivered by Rev. Val Rowlands said that Meg had experienced a full and interesting life. This also included living in South Africa for a considerable time. During this period she worked as a nurse, mainly in Johannesburg.
Meg then returned to Britain in 1966 and worked as an instructor at the Outward Bound Trust in Aberdovey. She loved the outdoor activities, hobbies which continued to give pleasure in her life.
