Vale Mrs Margaret Young, Life Member
It is with sadness that we advise the passing of our Life Member Margaret Young, peacefully on 26 February 2023. Margaret joined the Executive Committee of FNA in 1970 and gave 11 consecutive years of outstanding volunteer service until 1981.
During these years Margaret held various roles: Vice President and part of the grading committee for 9 years, both very responsible positions as well as the Protests and Permit Committees, Social Committee and various FNA Rep Team positions.
Margaret was honoured with Life Membership to Fremantle Netball Association in 1980 and the Attadale Netball Club in 1976 where she was a Foundation member of the Club. Her Life Membership was awarded for outstanding service and commitment to netball at Association, Club and Community levels.
Margaret had a real passion for our FNA Rep Teams which were just in their inaugural days during her time and held various roles including FNA Teams Co-ordinator, various team Manager roles and was the team Manager of the Senior Touring Team trip to Singapore.
Margaret had a real flair for the social side of fund raising and many good times were had including catering for wind-up functions and cabaret events for the Annual FNA Netball Queen.
FNA were fortunate via Margaret and the Family Business, Young Toyota, where various awards were provided including Young Toyota Umpiring awards and then the FNA Rep Team Player of Year Awards, even when team numbers reached 16 the awards still continued until the business closed.
Margaret always looked forward to our Annual Life Member’s morning teas and was always interested to hear about our latest developments and how the Association was progressing. Margaret was a very generous lady, always so elegant, she loved to laugh and have you laugh with her and we thank her for her great contribution to Fremantle Netball Association.
We extend our sincere condolences to her daughters Debra, Kylie, Sharon, son Dean and her extended family.
