It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Margaret Pill on Sunday 10 October 2021, at age 94. Margaret was a former staff member and for most of our 60 years, many along with her late husband Ron, a close and wonderful neighbour of the School. From the start of Westminster until recent years, Margaret lived in the grey house on the corner of Alison and Andrew Aves and took an exceptionally keen interest in the School’s progress. Margaret was born Margaret Western and was part of the family who originally owned and cultivated a substantial parcel of land on which Westminster stands. In the early years of Westminster, Margaret spent some time working in the front office (with another famous Margaret, namely Margaret Harris). Margaret was a valued member of our School community and one of the kindest, loveliest and most generous souls you could every wish to meet. Our thoughts are with her son Andrew (’71), her daughter Wendy and Margaret’s extended family, including many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Peter Trenorden (’77)
