Gardens dedicated by Cemetery Board in recognition of George McQuoid.

Following the death of his wife in 1986, Mr George McQuoid spent considerable time and effort tending the family grave where she was buried. Over many years, with approval of the Board, Mr McQuoid purchased trees and shrubs at his own expense, and worked with cemetery employees to plant and maintain shrub gardens and trees. His efforts greatly improved the appearance of the area and led to the upgrading of the nearby roadway. The Board recognised Mr McQuoid’s forethought and generosity with a small ceremony held in March 1992 to dedicate the “McQuoid Gardens” in his honour.
