I'm very sorry to say that my dear friend, Mudcatter Hilda Fish, also known as Dr Pam Dahl-Helm Johnston, died on her motorbike, yesterday 21.2.13. Pam was a strong, loyal, supportive and optimistic woman - a mother, grandmother, Aunty, activist, artist, feminist, and very good friend to many. Pam was an outstanding artist, a loving mother to a large collected family, and an optimistic and strong woman who helped many in her life.
Pam was a long term member of the Aussie folk community, I know many will be very sorry to hear this news.
Thanks Pam for your friendship, for the laughs and now especially the tears. Like many I feel lucky to have known you.
