Today we are sad to announce that Thérèse Angelo, Director of the Air Force Museum and a member of the Lyttelton Museum management committee, has passed away. She had been unwell for some time but always showed remarkable courage and determination over those months.
Thérèse was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in recognition of her extraordinary contribution to the museum and heritage sector. We have been so fortunate to have had her knowledge and support for a new museum for Lyttelton.
Our thoughts go out to her husband Rob, her family and friends, and to our colleagues at the Air Force Museum.
