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.
