Marie Steele

The club is very saddened to hear of the passing of Marie Steele. Marie was a very active committee member and Officer of the club holding several key roles in her time on the committee. Marie was very much into alternative health ideas and treatment well before this became popular and had a very keen interest in Bernese health being one of the club delegation that attended the very first international BMD health seminar in 2000. Marie conducted a large scale survey on Bernese foreleg lameness in the mid eighties.

Marie’s Bernese were known under the Caprima affix.

We send our condolences to Marie’s family.

A fuller tribute will be published in the next club publication.
