Some of our longtime members will remember Morna Lewis from our early conferences at Erskine House Lorne. Morna and her husband Bill would always drive in late Friday night and like most of us she would thrill to be with like minds who had a passion for storytelling. Morna put me in mind of Patricia Scott with her quiet composed telling and had been a member of our Guild for over thirty years.
Sadly we report her passing. After some time in the Alfred Hospital Melbourne, Morna was transferred to Portland Hospital for rehabiltation, where she died peacefully with Bill and her family present on 5 July 2012.
Bill reported that "at Morna's funeral the grandchildren came forward and placed a number of items symbolising her life on a table. Her passion for story telling was represented by her lovely colourful wool jacket. She was much loved in Portland and Heywood for telling stories to children and a wide range of community groups, and will be greatly missed." He asked that we inform her fellow members of the Victorian Story Telling Guild of her passing"
