Vale, Boz Brooks

Boz was one of the founding members of both Tree Fern Gully and Marmion Swamp bushcare groups. She was an active and pivotal member. We remember her as hard working, cheerful, full of fun and ideas. We are greatly saddened by her death.

Boz will never be forgotten. She had a keen intellect, and worked with dedication and determination to make a positive difference through her strong commitment to Bushcare, and to our North Leura environment and community. Council recognised her efforts with two Bushcare awards at this year’s Picnic. She is a local legend: her name and her work will live on.

The Welsh poet Dylan Thomas wrote in a poem for his dying father:

Do not go gentle into this dark night
But rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Boz raged — and raged! Good on you, Boz!
