Inner Wheel is one of the largest women's voluntary
service organisations in the world.
It is with great sadness for us to report that Muriel Wilson died on Monday 9th October 2017
Muriel was a founder member of Hamble Valley 40 years ago helping to form the club after Jim, her
husband helped to form Hamble Valley Rotary Club. She was the second President of the club and has
been President twice, in the following years. Muriel became District Chairman for 1993-1994 and
represented the District at the Convention in Sydney in that year. Inner Wheel was a big part of
Muriel`s life but she was a pillar of the community around her home in Botley and Fareham. In
appreciation of her dedication to assisting others she was awarded the MBE for services to
nursing, Rotary Paul Harris medal and, appropriately, an International Margarette Golding Award.
Muriel was an amazing lady who did not talk about herself. She helped so many people in her
life which is borne out by the citation for Her Margarette Golding Award and worked, tirelessly
beside Jim for the good of the younger generations.
She will be greatly missed by us all.
