The Victorian National Parks Association council, members, volunteers and staff were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mrs Eileen Margery McKee, aged 95.

Eileen was VNPA’s first paid member of staff, serving as our office manager from 1975 to 1987. She played a major part in building the organisation’s activities and defining its role. She also compiled a valuable record of VNPA during her time as office manager.

We extend our sympathy to her family and friends and, with their help, will compile a detailed tribute to her to be published in the June edition of Park Watch.

Make a gift in memory of Eileen McKee
