The club was saddened to learn of the passing of former No 1 ticket holder, Mrs Lorraine Elliott, last Wednesday 2nd July.
1 week away from her 71st birthday, Mrs Elliott was the Liberal Party member for Mooroolbark in the Victorian Parliament from 1992 to 2002. She served as parliamentary secretary for the arts, and shadow minister for community services and the arts during her time in Parliament.
Her family was by her side when she passed at the Epworth Hospital after complications from breast cancer she first contracted in 2001. The cancer re-emerged about six weeks ago.
Her son Tom Elliott, a presenter on radio station 3AW, remembered the former teacher as a “wonderful mother” to him and his two siblings.
“She was an incredibly kind and generous person, she was always very interested with what other people were doing,” he said.
Sincere condolences to the family.
