Death of emergency services volunteer

SEVERAL of the Derwent Valley’s emergency services organisations are this week mourning the death of volunteer worker Margaret Goss after a long illness. Mrs Goss, of Bushy Park, was also a nurse’s aide at the Ouse District Hospital.

For more than 20 years, Mrs Goss was a member of the New Norfolk Division of St John Ambulance Australia. She served many years as its superintendent. For a similar period, Mrs Goss was a volunteer with the Tasmanian Ambulance Service, based at the New Norfolk Ambulance Station. She was also a past member of the New Norfolk unit of the State Emergency Service.

On Australia Day in 1999 she was honoured as the Derwent Valley’s citizen of the year in recognition of her dedicated community service. She was also a recipient of the Service Medal of the Order of St John.

Mrs Goss, 60, died at the Royal Hobart Hospital on March 3, 2009. She is survived by her husband John, daughter Terri-Anne and several grandchildren.
