Vale Sybil Churchill

WELL-KNOWN former community nurse Sybil Churchill passed away on Christmas Eve, aged 73.

Mrs Churchill was the sister-in-charge of the New Norfolk Community Health Service for a number of years following her arrival in Tasmania in the 1980s. She brought many innovations to the district nursing service including the introduction of support groups and an emphasis on wellness.

She was a key figure in the conversion of the lower-ground floor of the New Norfolk Hospital into the Derwent Valley Community Health Centre in 1991.

Among her community activities she was a past president of the Glenorchy/Derwent Valley Zonta Club and a supporter of New Norfolk's Rotary and Lions clubs.

Mrs Churchill is survived by her husband Barry, her children Joanne, Michelle, Mikel and Craig, 10 grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

A memorial service will be held at St Matthew's Anglican Church at 11am on January 4.

Condolences to Mrs Churchill's family and friends.
