Eildon Housing Association are sad to learn of the passing of Myra Turnbull MBE.
Myra served with distinction on the Board of the Association for nearly a quarter of century. This volunteering effort underlined her commitment to public service to her community, for which she was awarded the MBE in 1996.
Myra was a passionate champion of the work of Eildon Housing Association and all things for the good of the Borders, and in particular her beloved home town of Hawick. She brought a breadth of knowledge and experience to her role as a Board member, however it was engaging with people where she really came into her own. A natural communicator comfortable in any formal or informal situation, she could light up a room with her warmth, personality, storytelling and dry humour. She will be sadly missed by all at Eildon. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to her friends and family.
