The WUSPBA Executive Committee wishes to extend condolences to the family and friends of Margo Naismith, who passed away last week on May 15. She was only 61. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer in March and underwent chemo treatment but it was too far advanced.
Margo was married to WUSPBA piping adjudicator Campbell Naismith and was the mother of Colin, also a piper. Margo was the highland dance teacher for the Academy of Highland Dance in San Diego.
A memorial service is in the planning stages.
Please keep the Naismith family in your thoughts and prayers. Campbell lost his mother, Irene, in January.
