Jo-Anne Dobson MLA has paid tribute to local lady Thelma Hamilton who sadly passed away last Thursday.
“To those who knew Thelma, and I am proud to count myself in that number, she was an absolute inspiration and a lady who did so much for others,” said Mrs. Dobson.
“Thelma was devoted to her husband Raymond and daughter Emma, who has inherited her mum’s upbeat, loving and caring nature.
“Thelma was a true legend in Banbridge, a lady loved by all who gave so much time to help others.
“Renowned for her untiring work with the Gateway Club and Girl Guides, the caring way she touched the lives of young people will live long in all our memories.
“Having visited the Gateway Club with Thelma and her family, I know how much love and devotion she showered on so many special young adults.
“My thoughts and prayers are with her husband Raymond, daughter Emma and her entire family circle.”
