We recently heard of the passing away of Louise Pallet. She actually passed away in August last year due cancer. At one stage in the early 90’s she was the SAMS’ President but stood down due to family commitments. More recently she was a Highway Masters Swimming Club member and lived at Umhlanga Rocks. She met her husband when she was working for Swiss Air. He was a pilot. They had one son who moved to Perth. She played the cello and violin and taught the violin right up until she died. She was an avid lover of her Ridgeback dogs. Our thoughts are with her son in Australia.
