In Memorium…
One of the long time members of the MG Club in Holland - Mrs Nea Gieske - passed away 28th September 2016. Nea Gieske was very active within the MG Club and participated in many arrangements around the world, although she never had a drivers license! Nea was the widow of Pieter Gieske, who passed away in 1985. Nea and Pieter were a very good team with Nea as a codriver in their yellow MG.

Lately, Nea was especially fond of the Chicagoland MG Club and visited you almost every year at the Halloween event. She was also planning to come this year.

Submitted on behalf of all Nea's friends in Holland and Denmark — Anette Schierbeck

Editor’s Note: Nea was an active member from afar of the CMGC for the past 6 years and we enjoyed her company on the driving event she attended while visiting the USA. She will be missed.
