Who is Letitia McKell?

Letitia McKellThis Makerspace has been made possible thanks to a generous bequest from Letitia McKell.

Born in Cambusnethan in December 1919 she and her husband, Frank, emigrated to North America in 1946, eventually settling in Everett, Washington State, USA where Frank worked in various jobs including as an Engineer.

Letitia was known for her quick-witted humour and her willingness to look after people. Letitia died in September 2001.

We are grateful to her for this behest which allowed this Makerspace to be created.
