RIP – Elsie Barrett – Vice President MMT – 1925 to 2019
We are very sad to announce the death of Elsie Barrett, one of the Vice Presidents of MMT on Tuesday 19 March 2019 at the age of 94. Elsie joined Molesey Operatic Society (MOPS), as it was known then, in the early days following its inauguration in 1970. Elsie appeared on stage regularly over the years, and for the last time in 2002 in the MOPS production of Jack the Ripper. In latter years she continued to attend rehearsals on Wednesday evenings and make refreshments for the society. After she finished the refreshments she would sit at the back of Vine Hall to join in the singing. When she finally retired, only 5 years ago, she donated a large stainless steel canteen teapot to the society which is still used every week. She will be sorely missed.
