We have received the news that Lucy Stone OAM passed away last weekend.  Lucy was the former Secretary of Strathfield District Historical Society, which was one of her many community and charitable contributions.  Lucy was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 1991 for her service to the Girl Guides Association of Australia. 

From 1991 to 2002, Lucy Stone was the primary researcher and contributor to the Society’s newsletter, a difficult task she performed for over a decade as well as fulfilling all the administrative demands of her role as Secretary. Her outstanding contribution to the Society was recognised in December 2002 with the award of Life Membership of the Strathfield District Historical Society.  Lucy moved from Strathfield to Cairns in 2002 to be closer to members of her family, however her many friends in Strathfield will remember the large contribution she made to community life and be saddened to hear of her death.

At the church service on Sunday 18 October at 9.30pm at the Uniting Church, Carrington Avenue, Strathfield “Lucy’s lifelong contribution to church and community will be remembered and honoured.”  Anyone interested is invited to attend.
