The memorial service for Old Girl Lilieth ‘Lil’ Brown will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 11am at St George”s Anglican Church, 83 East Street.
The St Andrew Old Girls Association (SAOGA) invites Old Girls and members of the St Andrew family to join us in celebrating the life of this extraordinary alumna who served the SAOGA with unbroken service since 1954. Attendees are asked to join SAOGA in honouring our beloved Lil by wearing green for her house Grace Darling or a School Badge.
SAOGA posted the following testament to Lil.
Lilieth Osment Brown was a serving member of the St Andrew Old Girls Association executive with unbroken service since 1954. During her Presidency the Association started the Welfare Programme and the four year need based Scholarship, both of which continue today.
If her small trim, energetic figure is not familiar to you that’s because you have either never attended an Old Girls event or only attended the one or two that Lil missed. At least you should recognise that breezy, lilting voice, with its no nonsense tone over the telephone. “Lil here – have you bought your tickets yet? – You coming to meeting on Tuesday? – I need some spot prizes for Valentine’s Luncheon.” By the time you hang up you have committed to doing something for St Andrew High School.
Lil will always be remembered for her unparalleled loyalty to her beloved alma mater. Our hearts go out to her daughters Daria (SAHS OG) and Michelle on their loss.
We will miss you Lil. You were our living history book, our mother, teacher and friend. Our meetings and events will not be the same without you. RIP.
