I have been widowed for twenty one years. Have four sons, three daughter-in-laws and five grandchildren

Have led the campaign against fluoridation in Timaru since 1980. Was successful in getting the fluoride out of the water in 1985 and have had to fight hard to keep it out, ever since..Took a lot of flak about how the teeth would worsen and it would be my fault. The teeth didn’t worsen. In fact, they have been improving ever since.I have also worked on a voluntary basis for the local Blind Foundation for nearly thirty years. Was treasurer for 7/8 years and have been the chairperson for seventeen years.
