Remembering Patricia Irene Veale
02 03 1939 – 13 01 2017

Late of Benalla
Passed away at North East Health, Wangaratta after
a brave battle, aged 77 years.

Tricia, or Tric as she was known, was a much loved mother, mother-in-law and grandmother and to her family the Society extends its condolences.  Tric was also a much respected and revered member of The Society of Women Writers Victoria Inc.  From August 2009 to August 2011 she served as President of the Society she had joined in 2003.

A writer of both poetry and prose, she had no greater joy than to encourage those who wanted to write. The photo is of Tric receiving 2nd Prize in the Christmas writing competition the Society holds each year in November. Her  smile showed her delight. Sadly the November 2016 meeting would be Tric’s last. For members’ tributes, click Tricia.

  1. Only one gift surpasses that of being able to express yourself freely – such as through writing. It is the gift of having people around you who care. For just that, I genuinely thank the Society and all of the contributors on the reflections my beloved mum ‘Tric’ Tricia Veale. Thank you to Meryl and Jenny for clarifying my connection with what was a deeply special part of Mum’s life and being. Always, Neil (Tric’s Son)
