Marj Gutteridge Hyperbolic Crochet Coral contributor from Emerald Glades Hostel died 12.6.10 aged 95.
"I remember Marj as a beautiful, vibrant woman. Always friendly with a smile and a kind word for everyone. I never heard her grumble and I feel privileged to have known her." Dawn Ashford
"Marj was a wonderful artist who loved a challenge, each weekend she would ask for homework and would crochet coral for the Melbourne Reef in her room, becoming wilder and freer in her creativity. Her last piece of her many contributions was an octopus for the fluro cave.
She rolled up her wool and left her crochet hook placed in it on her dressing table for me to find when I returned to work. A generous, creative, appreciative, adventurous artist will be greatly missed, but her coral lives on to make a difference for the worldwide project of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef."
