Farewell Maureen - the Voice of Nutshell

It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of my dear friend and co-worker Maureen Watson on the evening of September 12.  She died peacefully in her sleep after a lengthy illness

She will be known to many Nutshell customers as the woman who answered the calls to our US Freephone (1866-427-3688)

Maureen was 69 years young and had been a linchpin in the Nutshell company for over 15 years.

Initially responsible for our dispatch processes from our factory in Patrick Street Onehunga, Maureen fell in love and married Graeme Watson, one of New Zealand's last great saddle makers. Graeme had been a member of my business partner Steve Munro's manufacturing team for many years and was the man behind many of the products that you buy from Nutshell today.

A funeral service will be held in Auckland at the Manukau Memorial Gardens on Monday August 17 at 2 pm (NZT)
