A celebration of the life of Patty (Patricia) Jung will be taking place this Sunday August 5 from 11am at Corndale Hall.

Patricia’s body was located at Tintenbar after an extensive search on July 17.

We would like to sincerely thank all of the people involved in the search around Fernleigh for our dear friend Patty Jung over July 16 and 17.

‘It was inspiring to witness the logistics involved searching through difficult terrain to locate Patty. The swift co-ordination of Ballina police, Lismore detectives and the SES was commendable,’ said patty’s friends Kate Larkins and Bruce Chester.

Patty was extremely well known and liked throughout the Byron and hinterland communities, having started and operated Corndale Organic Bushfoods as a family business during the 1980s.

‘Many of your readers will remember their ground-breaking market stall selling certified organic macadamia nuts and macadamia butter.’

Everyone who knew Patty and helped with her search are invited to celebrate her life at Corndale Hall this Sunday.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
