Lithgow City Council notes with sadness the passing of Dr Judy White OAM.

“Dr White was one of Lithgow’s great citizens,” Lithgow Mayor Cr Stephen Lesslie said.

Dr White served as a Councillor on Lithgow City Council for fourteen years from 1977 to 1991 and was Deputy Mayor between 1985 and 1988.

In 2016 Dr White received an OAM for her many years work for the Lithgow community.

“However she was much better known as one of the great doctors this town has had and for her unstinting community work,” Cr Lesslie said.

“On a personal note I am also saddened as she was a personal friend of my late father Dr Tom Lesslie and it is yet another marker in the passing of an era.”  Cr Lesslie said.

“They worked together on many local committees including the Sunnybank School for Handicapped Children,” Cr Lesslie said.

On Friday the flag at Lithgow Council was flown at half mast.
