Kate Larkins & Bruce Chester, Fernleigh

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.

Although the outcome did not reflect our wishes, the actions of the selfless individuals involved in achieving that outcome cast a silver lining on an otherwise dark cloud.

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.

We will think of all those who helped with the search during the celebration of her life that will be held at Corndale Hall on Sunday August 5 from 11am.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
