Two Kimberley volunteers retire after years of service

Two long serving volunteers of the Marysville Thrift Store are hanging it up.

  • Aug. 29, 2012 11:00 a.m.

With a combined total of at least 70 years, Delma Nelson and Mae Vold officially retired from the Marysville Thrift Store on Saturday August 25, 2012. These ladies dedicated many years as volunteers to the Kimberley Health Auxiliary.  Although Mae had a full time job plus a family, she still found time to volunteer every Wednesday afternoon. When the first Marysville Thrift Shop opened in 1992, Mae started working Saturdays.  Her first partner was Grace Gilbertson. Delma’s parents, Marg and Axel Nelson were one of the couples of the original Kimberley Health Auxiliary so it was second nature for Delma to become a member also.  She has worked in the Marysville Thrift Store for twenty years and although she lives in Cranbrook, no matter what the weather was, she drove to Marysville every Saturday. The Coordinators and staff all wish Delma and Mae many happy years of deserved retirement. Thank you ladies, you are both greatly appreciated.
