DOROTHY HENSHALL BROWN 9 June 1927 – 8 May 2020


Dorothy Brown was made a Life Member in 1978, the first female member to have been so honoured. She served as Membership Secretary in 1961 and 1962, as Booking Officer during the period of the major extension of Tiobunga whilst also being involved in actual construction work, as Assistant Treasurer in 1965 and 1966 and Publicity Officer in 1967. She was a member of the Sub-Committee appointed to investigate the construction of a lodge in Thredbo. She was involved in the design of the kitchen plan for Carinya and she handled the arduous task of maintaining the members’ loan register for the Carinya project. Dorothy also served on many sub-committees.


Dorothy is also well known for constructing wonderful scale models of our lodges in the form of cakes for celebrations in the lodges.


There is an interesting article from the Canberra Times that I recommend reading.


A private cremation will be held, and a memorial service for Dorothy will take place at a future date.

For details of the memorial service please contact the family at [email protected]
