Passing of Sue Ray

July 5, 2019

It is with great sadness that I notify the members of the Murray Grey Beef Cattle Society of Sue’s passing last week in Tumbarumba.

Sue’s graveside funeral will be held next Tuesday 9th July, at 2pm at Tumbarumba Lawn Cemetery, Cemetery Road, Tumbarumba.

I have been in touch with Lew Smith (being a close friend) regarding Sue’s connection with Murray Greys.  This is what Lew had to say:

“Sue displayed great loyalty to the Murray Greys and worked tirelessly for the Society.  Sue was office manager and then took over the role of CEO at turbulent times in the Society. Sue held the society together at a time when stability was needed.

When the opportunity arose to purchase her own farm, she took the opportunity and often topped the Wodonga sale yards with her cattle that she had bred.

Sue always had an affinity for the greys”.

Thank you Lew
