Val was also a long-term member of the Friends Management Committee and served in that role from 2001 till her recent passing. Speaking of Val’s tenure on the Management Committee, Bob Bunney, the President of FOKP, said that “Val provided a consistent, sometimes persistent, well considered and invaluable contribution, offered often in good humour, but always with grace. Val was always willing to help in any task and was always ready to provide advice and mentoring, when needed. She is a great loss to the Friends and will be sorely missed.”
For her outstanding services to the Friends of Kings Park, Val was honoured with the award of Honourary Life Membership in 2013.
She will be greatly missed by all Friends. Vale Val.
