Obituary of Winnie Thomson, volunteer and founder member of Glasgow’s Children’s Panel; born May 14, 1914; died July 8, 2007.
Winifrid (Winnie) Thomson, who has died aged 93, devoted almost two-thirds of her life to serving her fellow Glaswegians with great vigour.
Thomson’s voluntary service began in the Girl Guides, where she was successively a guide leader, a district commissioner in Glasgow and then for 10 years a division commissioner for Glasgow south. She was still at the time of her death an ambassador for Girlguiding Glasgow, an active member of the Trefoil Guild and chair of Girlguiding Glasgow’s house committee.
Throughout, her focus remained on the grass-roots – her raison d’etre – with unrelenting conviction and enthusiasm.
