We received some very sad news tonight that Marcia Meehan has passed away.
Marcia was an inspiring Bee Woman, who was very encouraging to myself and Margaret when we started our blog.
It was such a thrill to met Marcia at the NBA Conference in 2011. It certainly felt like we were meeting a celebrity of the bee world. Having read her blog posts, we certainly felt like we were meeting an old friend.
She also travelled the country presenting workshops on natural beekeeping with Top Bar Hives, her love for the bees was obvious.
She had a love of nature that came out in all her writing, it was always great to catch up with her when we crossed paths. This is very sad news indeed…
We wish to send our condolences to all Marcia’s friends and family, please know you are in our thoughts at this time.
We will miss her inspiring tales of her adventures in this world.
There will a service for Marcia on:- Monday 3rd of December 2012 12pm
395 Morrinsville Road
