We would like to acknowledge one of our members, Margaret Blee, who nominated BCNA as a beneficiary of her estate.
Margaret grew up in the inner-southern suburbs of Adelaide. She entered the South Australian Police force in a secretarial role and later became one of the first uniformed female police officers in South Australia. Margaret was awarded a Certificate of Commendation for outstanding commitment and performance in an investigation and trial relating to a double homicide.
In her retirement, Margaret took great pride in maintaining her home and garden, and doted on her dogs. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. Margaret is remembered by friends as a very private and independent person, yet loyal and generous of spirit.
We are very grateful to Margaret for her gift. Her generosity will help ensure our work can continue into the future.
