It is with deepest sadness that we bid "farewell" to our newly elected President Lorraine Goldsmith who passed away unexpectedly on Sunday March 1 2009.
There are not many women who have been in the VIEW Club for as many years as Lorraine Goldsmith. Lorraine had been a member of the VIEW Club for 40 of the 49 years that the VIEW Clubs have been in existence. She had been a member of a number of VIEW Clubs in Sydney serving on committees and previously serving as as Zone Councillor and National Councillor. She was the newly elected President of the Lake George Day VIEW Club and member of the Bungendore Evening VIEW Club. In 2008 Lorraine was presented with a badge commemorating her 40 years as a member of VIEW.
Lorraine always wore her VIEW Club badges with pride and was a committed and loyal member.
We will miss her smile and helpful demeanor. Her courage in the face of her physical adversity was inspirational to all. We send sincere condolences to her family and friends. God bless you Lorraine. May you rest in peace.

Dear Lorraine, I am missing you terribly, already. I feel we had become like mother/daughter (even though you were not old enough to be my mum). I miss your daily phone call. I miss the frienship you bestowed upon me. I want to thank you for all the support you gave me whilst you were Secretary for Lake George VIEW Club and I was President. How proud I felt to hand over to you knowing that the Club could not be in better hands. Your Presidency was so very short lived. Sincere condolences to Cheryl and family and to Russell & family. Rest in peace my darling as I am sure you have gone to a better place. Love you always, Pauline.
