Maureen Johnston MBE

As you may know Maureen died on the afternoon of 28 December 2013.

Maureen Johnston MBE was well known to us as a prominent and active resident of our ward, but also because her energy, enthusiasm and passion for improving our local area was enormously appreciated by residents, local groups, and by all of us at Lambeth Council who had the privilege to work with her over her decades of almost full time voluntary work. Maureen's passion for justice and fairness was indefatigable, and ensured that she consistently and persistently strove to represent our community at all levels across Lambeth and Southwark.

Maureen was always available, approachable and keen to discuss any opportunities to work together to help local improvements and initiatives give their best to the local community. She was a lovely lady who will be sorely missed on so many levels.

From 4:30-6:30 on the 23rd there will be a community get together for Maureen to be held in Kennington at Amici's Restaurant ( 205-209 Kennington Lane, London SE11 5QS )  This is not so much a formal memorial service, as an opportunity for local friends and family to come together and remember all the wonderful things Maureen has done for the Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall community.

Maureen has requested that friends and family make a donation to Trinity Hospice in lieu of sending flowers.
