MARIAN FINDON

It is with great sadness that we have to pass on the news of Marian’s death on 7th April 2023.

Marian and her husband Michael set up Highland Disabled Ramblers in 2001. Through their commitment over many years they supported and developed the group to what it is today. Michael was a wheelchair user himself, and saw the need for people with mobility problems to get out into the countryside for relaxation and companionship. Sadly his health deteriorated and he passed away in 2008.

Marian continued as an active member of the group until she developed Parkinson’s. When she could no longer manage to cope by herself she moved to St.Olaf Care Home in Nairn where she lived for over 5 years. She died there peacefully on 7th April. (more details on our Facebook post)

 

Welcome  to our 2023 season of talks and rambles.
We look forward to seeing you during the season, enjoying the outdoors in lively company.

See our list of  RAMBLES for 2023.
