Federal Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie has expressed sadness at the passing of well-known Camden Haven identity Daphne Johnston OAM.
“Daphne has been a wonderful member of our community, always giving. She has been involved in many local community groups and organisations including the Red Cross and Meals on Wheels and served as an alderman and councillor on our council for 25 years, giving a significant amount of her time to make our community a better place,” Dr Gillespie said.
“I have always appreciated her words of wisdom and advice. Daphne was always respectful of others and told you exactly how she saw it.”
“She has had a long and active life and I know many people would agree that our community is an even better place because of her many decades of community service.”
“On behalf of my wife Charlotte and the broader community, I would like to express my condolences to Daphne’s family and pay tribute to a wonderful lady who gave so much to our community,” Dr Gillespie said.
