Cathy Thompson at a blue table


On behalf of the museum staff, Advisory Committee, volunteers and friends, our sincerest condolences to the family of Cathy Thompson – she will be dearly missed.
The museum has lost not only a valued and long standing member of the Advisory Committee but a huge proponent of WHAM, Norfolk’s history through the United Empire Loyalists and a vast genealogical source of knowledge.
