OBITUARY:THE LATE MISS M.R.E.BARNES. – Page:130
We have all been greatly shocked and saddened by the sudden death on 18th January of Miss Margaret Barnes, perhaps, better known to us as Peggy. She had been a member of the Society from 1959 when she moved to Beaminster as senior mistress and history specialist at the Grammar School there. During all these years she was a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of all the activities of the YALHS., constant in her attendance at both winter meetings and summer outings. She was always greatly interested in all aspects of local history and archaeology and had indeed taken part in digs both at Glastonbury and Blackford, Wedmore. She was a fine teacher and passed on her enthusiasm for history to the many pupils whom she taught at both at Sexeys, Blackford and at Beaminster. She had a warm and outgoing personality, with a wonderful gift for friendship and we shall all miss her greatly.
