It is with sadness that I write this obituary of Marjorie (Margie) Kelso, widow of the late Billy who was both Hon Treasurer and Secretary of the NIBU for many years. Margie was a great supporter of all NIBU competitions and represented Northern Ireland on the Lady Milne team. She was also a NIBU representative on the IBU council. Although not holding an official position, she did a lot of work supporting Billy as Congress Organiser and International Match Manager. She was a founder member of the 75 club (now defunct).
She was a keen golfer, being a member of both Royal Belfast and Massereene Golf Clubs.
On a personal note, Alan and I enjoyed many trips to Donegal Congresses playing with them in the teams. She and Billy were the winners of the first Donegal Congress Pairs. We also played with them in a number of NIBU teams competitions as well as travelling with them to the the Moylan Cup on a regular basis.
The NIBU extends its condolences to the whole family circle at this sad time.
