Ruby Marshall MBE – it is with great sadness that we have to inform you Ruby passed away on Friday evening due to corona virus. We in NESCHA, but so many others, including Hartlepool Healthwatch, Carers and the Hospice, and so many in the region, and in the national NHS Forum, have lost a very respected, hard working, warm person who has always thought of others first.
We were glad that we were able to recognise fully her contribution when she stood down as Chair (see pictures below), but were pleased that she still continued as a Board member, alongside so many other commitments.Ruby will be a great loss to the community and her family.
Very sad news for us all as we know so many are suffering directly and indirectly from this terrible virus, and Ruby would be the first to think of others – as she always did.
