Artwork honours employee who passed away from cancer
FAMILY and former workmates gathered at Warwick accountancy firm Barlow Dolling to pay tribute to a friend they will not forget.
In 2002, Nancy Brownlie joined the Barlow Accountants office in Warwick and, after 10 years with the firm, died from cancer in January 2013.
Nancy's mother, Akooramak resident Peggy Guy, with the help of former art teacher John Simpson recently completed her first foray into the world of painting.
A piece she calls The Road We All Have to Travel.
On Thursday, Mrs Guy donated the finished work to business owner Paul Barlow as a thank you for the years Mrs Brownlie was employed the firm.
"She was a loyal and hardworking employee here at Barlows for more than 10 years," Mr Barlow said. "She was a wonderful asset to the company and sadly missed by us all."
The painting will hang in the front office, underneath a portrait of Mrs Brownlie.
