Obituary - Margaret Haworth - Teregram

Following a short but aggressive illness Margaret Haworth sadly lost her fight for life and slipped away last night (Wednesday, 11 March).

I first met Margaret along with Fred many years ago when they started to show Bull Terriers. They later joined the committee of Bury Sporting Terrier and in Margaret I certainly found a kindred spirit in that we didn’t suffer fools lightly, had an innate sense of right and wrong but the big bonus was the sense of humour.

Anyone who has ever attended Bury Sporting Terrier knows it operates with a small Committee. Having served on the Committee Margaret later became Chairman but she always wore many hats, be it Chairman, Catering Manager, Steward or cleaning up at the end of the day. As her illness took hold she was unable to attend our show in February but was on the phone the day after enquiring about how we had done. At the moment it doesn’t feel right to be planning our October show without her but she would be the first to say – get on with it.

Sincere sympathies to Fred, Gordon, Graham and Karen.
