Vale Jill Rattray

Jill Rattray, who was a long-term and valued member of the Blue Mountains Bushcare Team, passed away after a long illness. Jill leaves a legacy, restoring and protecting our natural environment in the Blue Mountains through her work with our current groups, many from their inception.

Her horticultural expertise and bushland management knowledge, combined with her love of our natural environment, and interest in people, made her a valuable member of our team. Jill was a great educator, teaching many of our bush regenerators and community at the Blue Mountains TAFE, as well as working with the local retail nursery industry in the mountains. The result is that the majority no longer stock environmental weeds.  Her musical interests also extended to the Gang Gangs Bushcare band.  

Jill will be sadly missed by her colleagues, and the volunteers who worked with her, and the community members she had touched.

Jill’s funeral will be held on Monday 21 March at 11am, at the Leura Memorial Gardens.
